The main gathering point with start and finish line is at the future Wilden Market Square Site on Union Road across from the Hidden Lake Lookout Townhomes.
If you're coming from Glenmore Road turn onto Union Road and follow it all the way up until you see the event flags.
If you're coming up to Wilden from Clement Avenue just turn onto Clifton Road, then right onto Rio Drive. Follow Rio Drive, turn left onto Upper Canyon Drive and keep following the road all the way to the roundabout. Here take the 2nd exit to Union Road. Here you will see flags marking the event and parking site.
Portable toilets will be available at the start/finish area for your convenience.
Plenty of parking will be available on site visible with flags and is only a short walk from the start line (left) off Union Road. If the parking lot fills up street parking in the surrounding neighbourhoods will be available. We encourage all participants to car pool to reduce the hassle of finding parking and to keep the environment in mind.
Wild One is a cup free event. Please make sure to bring your own water bottle or hydration backpack. We will have water jugs at the aid stations to refill at any time.
We suggest the best spot for spectators to cheer on their runners is the start/finish area. If you wish to support your runners from the street (i.e. Upper Canyon Drive or Union Road) you are at your own risk and we advise to please be cautious with traffic.
All the proceeds and donations from this event go towards the Blenk Family Fund for Youth Mental Health. This fund support the Foundry Kelowna and as well as research and education in youth suicide prevention.
The team from Kodiak BC will be on site to capture fun memories. All pictures will be available for download on this website after the event. The event recap video will be shared via Wilden's social media.
FIRST AID & WATER STATIONS
We will have first aid on site at the start and finish line and on call in case something happens on one of the courses. If a runner can't complete the race due to an injury we will send first aid up to the injured person to pick him/her up.
We will have two water stations. One at the start/finish area and a 2nd one approximately halfway through the 10K course at the Wilden Fire Watch cabin. Only water will be available so if you need any other snacks or drinks please make sure to bring them yourself.
