Fun runs

KidsRunClubLogoParticipating in a running event can keep participants motivated during training and help them celebrate all their hard work. 


Fun runs, or youth runs, tend to be non-competitive, shorter distances (5 km or less) where participation is emphasized over racing. Some runs charge a registration fee, some don’t. Some runs provide T-shirts, medals and prizes while others simply provide participants an opportunity to experience a sense of accomplishment.

There are a number of youth-specific fun runs throughout the province, including several sponsored by Doctors Nova Scotia*:

Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run*

Cape Breton Fiddlers Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run*

Run Nova Scotia Youth Running Series*

Johnny Miles Running Event Weekend
