    Sunday April 27th - Guess Your Time Run for youth and adults in Victoria Park 9:00am – Registration Begins 9:30am – youth start 10:00am – 2km, 4km, 6km distances start: WHERE: Victoria Park Bandshell COST: $5/ adult $2/youth (under 16) $10/ family LEAVE YOUR WATCH AT HOME AND RUN FREE!!! There will be 2km, 4km and 6km distances. (There will also be 400m / 800m options for the youngest of the young – we regularly have participants as young as 2 years old) this is a flat as a pancake run on a 2km loop around lower Victoria Park. This is a guess your time event. At registration, you will guess your finish time. The person with the slowest predicted time starts first, and the person with the fastest predicted time starts last. If everyone guesses correctly, we will all finish together :) The “winner” is the person who finishes closest to their predicted time. To keep it interesting, no participants are permitted to wear a watch or timing device on course.
