HOW IT WORKS
Here is all you need to know to join our Wild One Virtual Run.
- Register for your preferred distance
- Complete your distance any time (or many times) from September 15th- October 15th 2021.
- You choose the pace, the date and the location
- You can do the full distance at once or break it into smaller increments over several days
- Track your time manually, with an app, or with GPS
- Option to submit you results online through RaceRoster
- Post your pictures on our Facebook page or share them on Instagram using #WildOneRun
If you live in the area we encourage you to complete your distance on the Wild One run course in Wilden. All three distances will be marked from September 15th 2021.
Please note that the Wilden backcountry is private property and that you enter at your own risk. Make sure you have your phone with you in case you get off route or lost. Let others know where you are in case you need help.
Wear appropriate trail run footwear! Be prepared for technical sections, steep ascents and descents as well as some loose footing in Wilden’s backcountry.
JOIN US ACROSS CANADA
If you’re joining us from other parts in Canada we invite you to get outside on your favourite trails. You are not only supporting youth in the Okanagan region. The research projects we are funding will improve the care for young people with mental challenges all over Canada.
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 their families in the Okanagan Valley and beyond.
Our goal is to build resilience and heighten awareness. We want to better understand where help is needed. With our work we hope to inspire meaningful, long-term improvements and help more and more young people navigate through troubling times.
With your registration you’ll receive a 2021 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.
You can also purchase extra shirts while registering on RaceRoster.
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 save fabric and overhead costs we are ordering shirts in badges. Register by August 31st 2021 to receive your shirt to wear for your virtual run. For any registration after after Aug. 31st we can’t guarantee that it will make it in time for the event. You’ll receive updates about your shirt via email once you’ve registered.
