Family Fun Run Tips

Kawartha Lakes Fenelon Falls Turkey Trot Oct 11 2014
Have you ever been in an intergenerational fun run with your family? What tips do you have to offer other families? When my youngest was a toddler, we took part in a church sponsored fun run in Oshawa. Here are a few things we learned from our experience.
  • Take another family along with you with similar aged family members if possible.  This will ensure you will have company during your walk, making it much more enjoyable. A fun run all on your own is not much different than a regular family walk -not so much fun.
  • Slather on sunscreen - wait for 15 minutes before rubbing in -otherwise the sunscreen is just on your hands. Wear wide brimmed hats and protect eyes with good sunglasses.
  • Wear comfortable clothes, and shoes with good support - protect your feet from "March fractures and Fallen arches". Dress in layers - weather can be changeable in the autumn.
  • Have young children? A wagon gives toddlers a fun opportunity to ride or walk and can be handy for toting a teen with blisters.
  • Pack water, apples and fun snacks that don't require hand-washing or stopping. Homemade granola bars wrapped in wax paper are a good bet - but keep them peanut free.Sending another participant to hospital is not fun. Save the water for the very end of the run -see washroom tip below.
  • Pack a mini first aid kit. Bandaids, ointment, extra socks something for bug bites or bee stings. Hopefully, you won't need it, but if you do, you'll be glad you have it with you.
  • Enforce the pre-walk washroom stop, and visit any public washrooms as soon as you see them enroute. You might want to take along tissues for public washrooms as well.
  • Prepare some take along fun.Print out a scavenger hunt of things to spot. Load your mp3 player or phone with some fun sing-along songs or bring along some finger puppets. Snap pics along the way - a sturdy kid friendly camera can be fun.
  • After the event, put together a family memory book of the day to remember the time you spent together in the great outdoors.
