 Join us for our 33nd Father's Day Annual Run/Walk/Skate/Bike!


Since 1987, the “Boys’ Home Run” has been a feature of Bright’s Grove every Father’s Day. It has grown to include a 10k road race, a 5k timed fun run, a 5k walk, a 7k rollerblade, 7k, 20k and 40k bicycle rides, and free onsite activities for children 4 - 10 known as Jr. Adrenaline Trail.

People come from far and near to participate. Some come to get a good time on our flat fast route, some come to test their abilities, and some come for a special time with friends and family. All proceeds stay local for the boys of Huron House.

Team T-Shirts

We are delighted to offer t-shirts for teams of four or more which register by Mother's Day (Sunday, May 12).  For $2 per shirt the team name will be printed on the shirt back.   This option is available to Remote Runners who are part of the team! 

Remote Runner

If you want to support this event but can't attend, sign up as a remote runner!  You can run on your own time...or just think about doing it.  Either way, you can select a cotton t-shirt and pick it up just like all the other participants, and even be part of a team.

Pancake Breakfast

A pancake and sausage breakfast is included for all paid participants and volunteers, from 8:30 am to 10:30 am 

 Additional breakfasts are available for $5.00 each for spectators. When purchased along with your registration, spectator breakfast vouchers will be added to your participant kit.

Teams - Discounts and Registration Tips

It's fun to be part of a group of family, friends or co-workers, and we encourage you to sign up as a team.  This year we've made it easier for group members in all categories to benefit from a team discount.  Teams of four or more registering at the same time will receive a discount of 6.5%.  The Race Roster platform requires team members to register at least four members at the same time to receive the discount.  

Hints for successful team registration:

VERY IMPORTANT:  Register all team members before hitting the 'continue' button at the bottom of the page.  Once that button is pressed you cannot return to modify participants.  

Have participant personal information handy as data is lost if the program times out after 15 minutes of inactivity.  

If you are a large team/family, consider registering members in groups of four or five at a time.  

Participants registering in events that have no fee are not included in team total for discount purposes.  

Remote Runners do receive a t-shirt and can be part of a team.

Have your team name printed on your tshirts (shirt back); option available until Mother's Day (May 12).

Registration as a Gift

Having trouble thinking of what to get as a gift for your friend or family member who really doesn't need anything?  Give them a registration that helps them, the Boys' Home and the community.

Purchase a gift registration online and the gift recipient can fill in details later.

Thank you for your support!

What is Jr. Adrenaline Trail?

Jr. Adrenaline Trail was added in 2015 as an offshoot of Adrenaline Trail (a very cool obstacle race for adults). The adult version is on hiatus but Jr. Adrenaline Trail has become an expected feature each year.  It takes place on-site near the dining tent and is open at no cost to children aged 4 - 10, with a parent present.  The children complete a series of activites both physical and creative.  The activities are challenging but not competitive. Activities vary from year to year.  There is no fee, but if you register in advance it helps us anticipate how many to expect. 

Volunteers needed, if you are a high school student looking for volunteer hours or someone that enjoys working with children, please register as one of our Volunteers.
