How do you like Wylie Ryan? He was created by 11 year old twins from Kirkland, Quebec - Devon & Liam Cutfield. Check out these developing cartoonists' blog at http://www.livoncomics.tumblr.com. Thanks boys!
The Wylie Ryan Kids' Series events are for boys and girls 11 years and under. The "races" are short, safe ones, in which everyone is a winner. Each participant receives a souvenir shirt, a medal when they cross the finish line, post race refreshments, an online certificate, and a chance at draw prizes.
There are no place awards for the "winners", because we think everyone is a winner in a Wylie Ryan Kids' Series event. It is a fun, safe way for the younger ones to join in the fun on an adult event day - and the awards are in alphabetical order.
Mom, Dad, grandparents, siblings, and friends are invited to "jog along" (at no cost) with those 9 years of age and under, to keep them company. Baby joggers are welcome for those who are too young to do it on foot - but you must start behind the runners.
If you can't make it to weekend events with your kids, check out the RUN4FUN program below, It may meet your family's, school's, and your kids' needs better.
