This Fall we are running one 8 week series in West Edmonton on Thursdays!  Participants can choose between daytime and night time programs

Our Thursday Programs are offered at the following times:  11:30AM – 12:30PM & 6:00PM – 7:00PM.

**  5 – 8 year old children must have a parent accompany them during the series **

Unsure if your child would be a good fit for Kids Run Wild?  Please email Dorothy at for additional information & suggestions. 


The program is for boys and girls aged 5 to 16 years.  Kids ranging in age from 5 to 8 are required to have parent/guardian participate with them.


$60 per child per eight week series!   Price also includes a Saturday event open to the whole family!

In order to participate in our Kids Run Wild programs, 2017 membership with the Edmonton Overlanders Orienteering Club is required.  The 2017 household membership is $35 per year which provides a household membership needed for our insurance purposes.  If you paid for the membership when you signed up for the Kids Run Wild in the Fall 2016 session then you already have a 2017 membership.

What to wear

Footwear: Running shoes with good tread for traction, and laces so your shoes stay on your feet in the mud.

Clothing: Clothes you can run in. We recommend long pants and long sleeves so you don’t get scratched by branches and prickles. On cool days or evenings, dress in layers so you can take  a layer off when you warm up.
