The program is for boys and girls aged 5 to 16 years.

Cost

The cost for the series is $50 per child which includes the BBQ event at Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area. 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 evenings, dress in layers so you can take  a layer off when you warm up.
