We do Kids Races, and we have fun with it!
Note: the price for the kid's races is determined by the distance of the race.
Kids love to be active and we love their Energy! We’re happy to put on the FVR kid’s races for our youngest athletes!
The Fort Vancouver run hosts two Kid’s race distancesKids Fun Run: 3 to 8 years old
- Wave 1: ages 3-6 years old or any kid(s) running with parent = $8
- Wave 2: ages 7 & 8 years old with NO parents = $8
- Wave 1: ages 3-5 years old or any kid(s) running with their parent = $12
- Wave 2: ages 6 -8 years old with NO parents = $12

Please Note: The Kids Fun Run is for kids 8 years old and under, while all kids age 9 years or older must register for the Kids 1K. However, beyond these requirements, the ages listed are simply recommendations. If your child is younger but can run the longer distance than by all means, we welcome that! We do ask however, if you sign your child up for the 1k distance, you are sure they are capable of running a half mile without issue.
The waves are designed to ensure the safety of the kids and to create a fun experience. Mass starts can cause trips and falls and no one likes those! Listen for the appropriate wave and please be patient. The kids get excited and we ask the parents to please assist us in listening and instructing their children of the rules. Be courteous of the other participants and at the end of day, please HAVE FUN!
**We encourage kids to participate on their own, but provide one race wave for parents to run with their kid(s).
**PLEASE REGISTER YOUR KIDS EARLY – Help us plan! Day of race registration will not guarantee the size or availability of Kid’s T-Shirts.
Kid’s races will start after the completion of the adult races. Please arrive early and allow enough time for traffic and parking!
