What will the Race look like this year?

While billed as a 6-km run, RBC Race for the Kids is designed for everyone. The Race begins at 8:45 a.m. but participants are encouraged to arrive early, beginning at 8 a.m. Start times will be staggered so the pathways don’t get too congested and families with small kids and strollers can go at their own pace, and there are opportunities to cut the Race short and turn back if the little ones aren’t feeling up to completing the circuit.

For those who enjoyed making RBC Race for the Kids their own over the last two years, a virtual participation option exists. Registration is free and participants can walk or run where they choose and still fundraise for child mental health. Virtual participants can also receive a race T-shirt when they fundraise $50 or more! Check out our RBC Race for the Kids FAQ for more.

A HUGE thank you to our 2022 sponsors!
