Race for Kids 2017 will feature some new excitement through the addition of a scavenger hunt throughout the event. While Race for Kids is designed as a challenge, no special skills, athletic ability or experience are required.

Saturday, May 27, 2017

10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Registration opens at 9am at the Boys & Girls Club of London
184 Horton Street

Race kicks off at 10:00 am
Awards and Celebration party to follow at 1:00 pm

What is it?

Picture a giant scavenger hunt, but for adults! We provide your 2 to 4 person team with a set of clues to various checkpoint locations with a scavenger hunt along the way. At each checkpoint there is a fun and wacky challenge to be completed! Your mission is to finish all and make it to the end as quickly as possible. Not the fastest team? No worries, this year the top teams will be calculated through their final Race time, less time incentives plus points achieved through the scavenger hunt challenges. Any team could take the win this year!

Fun and unique, Race for Kids also supports a great cause – much needed, nurturing and educational afterschool programs and summer camp experiences for children and youth in our community.
