Join the fun
The Gateway Pediatric Dentistry WildOnes Kids MaraFun is a unique race format that allows young people ages 4-12 to participate in their first race. On race day the course is 1.2 km but the kids are encouraged to do a 4-6 week training program to log their kilometers. If they get up to 41 km by race day they will complete their first "MaraFun" on the course! Don't forget to check out the Race Village in St. Albert, which includes a kids' fun zone, live entertainment, food and beverages and much more!
Coming back for 2024!
We are excited to bring the WildOnes MaraFun to more communities! Our WildOnes MaraFun racers will have the following options for participation:
Please note that the St. Albert WildOnes MaraFun will still be a part of the entire St. Albert RunWild event, including the 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon races, as it has in previous years. The satellite WildOnes MaraFun events in Sherwood Park and Spruce Grove will be on a smaller scale as it is only for the 1.2K MaraFun racers.
