Youth Run

Are there age limits for the Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run?

The Youth Run is open to children and youth 15 years and under as long as the parent feels they can complete the run distance (2KM or 4KM). Youth 16 and older are encouraged to register for the 5KM unless there are special circumstances.

Can I run the 4KM event though I registered for the 2KM?

Yes. Participants are asked to indicate their run distance when registering but can make their final decision regarding distance on the day of the event.

Can I run with my child?

We recognize that for safety, age, or other requirements, an adult may want to run with their child and we leave this to the parent/guardian’s discretion. If there are no special requirements, we encourage adults to cheer for all youth run participants from the sidelines.

Please note: parents who accompany their children on the run DO NOT REGISTER AS A RUNNER, however will have to complete a form within their child’s registration profile. The adult will receive a event bib to be worn while on the course, however, do not receive a T-shirt or medal.

Nobody is permitted on the race course without an official event bib.
