THE WILD ONE RUN
In order to keep everyone healthy and safe we have decided to turn the 2020 Wild One Run into a virtual race.
Now is a great time to be active, to stay connected and to come together for a cause, even if it's not in person. Interact with your fellow participants and runners across Canada using the hashtag #WildOneRun. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and share your photos with us.
We might not be running together, but we are still showing up for the same reason: Raising Awareness & Funds for Youth Mental Health.

All Proceeds go to Youth Mental Health
The Blenk Family Fund was established together with the KGH Foundation to strengthen the network of mental health support and services available to young people and families in the Okanagan Valley and beyond.
Our goal is to build resilience and heighten awareness – to better understand and support where help is needed. With this work we hope to inspire meaningful change within more and more communities.

With your registration you'll receive a 2020 Wild One shirt - Light and moisture wicking design for the perfect run experience.
During your registration process you'll be able to select your size and shirt style.
If you wish to purchase an extra shirt you can do so on RaceRoster in your registration process. If you'd like to purchase a shirt, but not sign up for a distance, please still go through the registration process and select the option 'Souvenir Shirt purchase ONLY - No race registration'. Extra shirts are $20 each.
To receive your shirt in time to wear for your run please register/purchase until August 9th 11.59pm. Any registrations after August 9th will receive their shirts after the run.
With your registration you’ll receive a 2020 ‘Wild One Run’ shirt, online community & support, and results posted online.
If you register by August 9th you will receive your shirt in the mail by the end of August or beginning of September; in time to wear for your run.
If you sign up after August 9th, don’t worry, you will still receive your shirt, but after September. It’s not necessary to have your shirt to complete your distance in, feel free to send us some pictures in your gear once your shirt has arrived.
One shirt is included in your registration. The shirts are made out of 100% polyester and you get the option to choose between three styles:
- Unisex: Find the sizing chart here.
- Ladies Fitted: Find the sizing chart here.
- Youth: Find the sizing chart here.
If you wish to purchase an extra shirt you can do so online in our RaceRoster store for $25.
Walk, jog or run your distance any time and as many times as you like throughout the month of September. Time yourself either manually, with an app or GPS and submit your result online through RaceRoster.
If you live in or near Wilden we’d love to see you complete your distance on the Wild One run course. The 5K and 10K run will be marked out throughout September. More details coming soon.
You can, but don’t have to. If you like, break up your distance into smaller increments over several days or complete it all in one go.
Yes, you can, but we won’t be able to ship any shirts internationally, only within Canada. We would still love to have you participate and support our cause.
Simply head over to our RaceRoster Results Page and submit your time there. If you decided to run your distance multipel times feel free to update your time. You’ll also have the option to submit some photos of your experience, could pre-, during or post-run. We’d love to see your pictures.
