Team Marathon

We know that preparing and running a marathon is a huge challenge that stretches the limits of body and mind. To help you experience what it's like, we offer a new Team Marathon race this year.

All you need is 4 members to enter a team. Each member will complete just over 10km before handing off to the next member. The final 1km of the 42.7km course is completed together. Each team can give themselves a name, and members will receive a unique race bib to identify their team. Team members are responsible for making their own transportation arrangements to the hand-off points. The team will collectively receive a team marathon award to share and show off their achievement.

Why are we doing this? - the organizers have noticed that many do not attempt the marathon due to the extent of the challenge. As such, this race will give you the opportunity to expeirence the distance and work towards your own marathon goal.

For families, this means that parents and children can practice together, support each other, and work towards a family goal that will increase the physical well-being of the entire family, and the enitre community at large.

1km Kids Run

Have a little one who is too small for the 5K? Get them to join in on the fun with a 1km race around Dixie Gurdwara. Entry is strictly limited to children 6 years old and under, who must run or walk on their own (cannot be in a stroller or carried by a parent). Older children should participate in the 5K.

This race takes place within a part of Dixie Gurdwara's parking lot which is closed to traffic, as well as the sidewalks on Dixie and Derry Roads. Children will not be crossing any traffic and volunteers will be on hand to help ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable race.
