The Aerobics First Gorsebrook Hill Run is Saturday June 10th with Tykes starting at 10am. Registration opens at 8:30am and closes at 10:30am (however, 9:30am for walkups).


A few key things to remember:

1. Full Series Membership will close after this race. Membership means results will be tracked for all races, bibs will be pre-printed plus members gain access into the year end awards banquet.


2. The first PARENTS race will happen right after the PeeWee's run. It will be a 1.5km distance. All parents are encouraged to take part.


3. Same day/walk up registration will close at 9:30am. We STRONGLY encourage TRACKIE pre-registrations if you are just signing up for this one race. You pay $5 at the race (so no money lost if you can't come), we can print your bib in advance, plus our new scanning results system NEEDS all runners names BEFORE the race starts. Trackie will be open till 6pm on the Friday before the race.

YRS is looking to get more teams out cross training at the events. This means hockey, paddling, swimming, soccer, etc. The Aerobics First Team Participation is still at $1000 to the top team. So please promote this to your runners' other sports teams.


The Nova Scotia Health Authority School Participation Challenge is back once again with $2500 top prize.


Parent races will be the A1 Gorsebrook Hill run as well as the Scary Beazley event.


A big welcome to the Board is Patricia Jones and Gabriel Mercier. Patricia is coming on as Co-President and Gabriel is developing a new role in YRS Communications.



The TENTATIVE calendar has been posted. This may change based on field bookings and bridge openings :)  We are excited to be introducing an Anitgonish X-Country race in October on the SFX grounds which will be a partnership race with Athletics NS.  




ALL RESULTS for the 2016 season have been updated. 



Some NOTES about the overall points:

1. You need to be a YRS member. Click here to read more about membership.

2.  Participation points are awarded with placement points. Participation points are awarded everytime a YRS member competes in an event. 5 points are awarded for each event. For placement points, the best 5 out of 10 races will be tabulated at the end of the season. MORE points the better!! This gives all YRS members a chance to get a trophy or medal at the end of the YRS season.

Any questions or issues, please contact Leah.

Please NOTE - Deadline for becoming a full series member is May 13, 2017


NOTE - School Participation Challenge points are counted whether the child is a YRS member or not. Any child that shows up from a school will receive points towards the school participation challenge.
