10K UPDATE - Unfortunately we did not get enough participants registered for the 10K race. Due to the high cost of hosting the 10K we had to cancel the 10K portion of our run. I have reached out to each person registered for the 10K, but there are a few folks I have not heard back from. If you are registered for the 10K and have not spoken with me about your options, I will be contacting you again. Please accept our most sincere apologies about this shift. In such a tough fundraising climate, we are trying to be very careful about our expenses so that we can make sure we raise the funds our school and the kids attending our school need.

COVID-19 Procedures:

PEI wants to ensure that we have a fun and safe event, so we will have hand sanitizer at each station and masks available for anyone who wants them. Because the event is outdoors, masks are not required. To be extra cautious, we have removed the face painting option and added temporary tattoos for kids hands. We will still have Binky the Clown there with balloons for the kids. Volunteers will be using hand sanitizer regularly and the kids fun run will start with each child sanitizing their hands and end with them sanitizing their hands .

Run Course Details:

Below is a link to the course map. There will be port-a-potties and hand washing stations at the park. The turnaround point will have water and volunteers to help with directions or in case of emergency.
