Event Overview


This is the premier family running event in the province.  'Feet' down.  The day kicks off with the 1 km Bunny Hop race where many of the area's kids get their first experience racing.  

Over the 1 km, you'll see every emotion, feel every step, and usually be amazed by (and envious of) the speed of some of these kids.

 Once that wraps up, the big races get underway and they are packed with talent.  Some of the area's best runners and running teams kick off their season with this race so spectators get an eye full as these runners glide through this race.  

It all done and wrapped up by lunch time, just in time to head home and start getting your Easter dinner ready or get in the car and head off to the family event.


 This year the first 600 runners in the 5k and 10k will receive a race branded running technical T-shirt!!!

ALL 5K AND 10 K finishers will receive a finishers medal!

Bunny Hoppers will recieve a finisher's medal and "goodie bag"just for the 1k finishers.
