Little Big Run
may 31, 2013
Foote Field, Edmonton (11601-68 Ave)
(Rain Date: June 26th, 2012)
Between 3,000 and 4,000 students from grades one to six will learn all about participating in a track & field meet on May 31 at the Little Big Run.
This event has evolved over time and now includes various running, jumping, and throwing activities, like a group fitness session, a 1k fun run featuring a live DJ, and other activities. Following the run, students will receive a water bottle and be invited to visit the activity centres on site.
Parents are welcome to attend the Little Big Run, but they are encouraged to meet the students at Foote Field in order to maximize the space available on the buses for the kids.
School registration is coordinated through school board physical education consultants, allocated on a first come, first served basis. School registration information will be distributed to Edmonton Schools in April 2012.
The Little Big Run was founded by the University of Alberta and Alberta Health Services.
