Each runner will get a t-shirt, race number, glow glasses, and a glow bracelet included in their race packet. Oh, and all the Electro tunes your ears can handle, so get limber and get ready to dance your face off!

September 14 - Beakerhead
Top
Catharsis Catapult Competition
  • 2:00pm - 5:00pm
  • Free for All Ages

Beakerhead winds down by winding up the most massive and delightful catapults built! Local teams (within driving distance) will design and build catapults with the intention of tossing love-to-hate items, whether a gang of Barbie dolls or a box of an ex’s stuff. As far as design goes, the quirkier, the better! These teams will bring throwing contraptions ready to square off with other teams for the final event of Beakerhead! The competition is open to the public and promises to be both a great tension release for competitors and the audience.

Unbreakable - NOTE: Postponed until September 19

November 1 - Fast and Female 
Top
November 1 - Fast and Female Veteran Canadian national team cross-country skier, Chandra Crawford wanted to help keep youth active and girls involved in sport. In 2005, that led her to create Fast and Female, a not-for-profit society aimed at empowering young women in sport. Fast and Female’s goal is simple: To support, motivate, inspire and empower girls ages nine to 19 to stick to sports and the healthy lifestyle.  It’s all about empowerment through sport, with the organization hosting fun-filled, non-competitive programming for girls, led by female Olympians and elite athletes. Fast and Female also delivers educational content to parents and coaches.

On Nov. 1, WinSport will be the host venue for the Fast and Female Girls in Sport summit. The event has spots for up to 150 girls aged nine to 19 and 50 spots for parents and coaches, and features a full day of programming, including sessions with nutritionists, sports psychologists and Olympians.
