August 11th will be our final KITCan race of 2018 located in Oakville at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community Centre.
Almost 800 families have come out and raced with us and Kit so far this season.
One of the unique features of our KITCan races is the Family Fun Zone. This is where all kinds of fun, iterative games and activities are available free of charge for our special Kit Kids.
We are happy to have the following community groups and activities available to every one to enjoy throughout the day:
- 2016 Rio Paralympic Guide Sasha Boulton – Learn about paratriathlon and play some fun games
- Winky the Clown – get your face painted or get an awesome balloon animal (or both!)
- Stroke and Stride Race Series – bean bag toss for prizes
- Reptillia Zoo – meet all kind of nice reptiles (9-12)
- Oakville Fire Department – explore and learn all about a fire truck (10-11am)
- Main Event Fun Games – Inflatable obstacle courses
- Schlegel’s Gymnastics Centre – gymnastic course
- CheerForce All Stars – cheerleading demonstrations
- Melitta Coffee – Free coffee for mom and dad!
Some additional benefits of racing with us include awesome race kits bags filled with great treats and free downloadable race photos. You will also find these cool temporary tattoos of Kit in your race bags that you can wear on race day!
Don’t forget, each race has a different finishers medal featuring Kit either swimming, biking or running and the Oakville racers will get to add Kit running to their collection.
Due to the limitations of the venue the Oakville event can only accommodate 3-9 year olds. The Oakville event will be moving to a different Oakville venue in 2019 and we will try our best to accommodate 10-11 year olds.
Registration and information about our next events can be found on our event website at www.kitcanseries.ca
