Turkey Trot

More Info Click Here

Join us for a fun and fitness day for everyone in the family at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum! More than 350 kids participated in the 2014 Turkey Trot, and they all seemed to enjoy it.
Wylie Ryan's Most Excellent Turkey Trot (1Km) is great for kids up to 11 years of age. It is also a super way for schools and clubs to raise funds for their own activity programs. Kids can enter for just $15 plus HST (or $20 inclusive).

Everyone gets a souvenir shirt, a personalized bib number, a finisher's medal, an online certificate, refreshments, a timing chip, and a chance at one of the many draw prizes.

Mom, Dad, grandparents, siblings, or friends are invited to "jog along" (at no cost) with those 9 years of age and under, to keep them company. Baby joggers are welcome for those who are too young to do it on foot - but you must start behind the runners.

The start time is set, so the Mom's and Dad's who want to jog-a-long with the kids can do that, and still have time to run in their your own race ( marathon runners excepted).

wylie ryan fall half marathon for kids - for home and/or school
We are pleased to announce a fall program to get kids (ages 7-11) running regularly in the month before Wylie Ryan's Most Excellent Turkey Trot 1Km Run. The program is called the Wylie Ryan Fall Half Marathon for Kids, and is designed for use at home or school - monitored by parents and/or teachers.

Kids will run and track their running program in the month or so leading up to the Turkey Trot. They will have completed 20Km before the race, and add their 21st kilometre, and complete the last 1Km of the 21Km half marathon distance at Wylie Ryan's Most Excellent Turkey Trot on October 13th. Those who complete the Half Marathon over that period of time, will receive a Wylie Ryan Fall Half Marathon Certificate and Half Marathon medal in a special ceremony after the Turkey Trot.
