Brantford BURST 2019 is our third annual 5K+ run/walk explosion of colour & FUN!

Do you have a senior that has impacted your life?

Would you like to participate in a healthy community event and help break down the barriers of social isolation among our aging population?

Then gather up a team of friends and family and register for our Burst!

Let’s work together in raising funds to fill bus loads of students so they can visit seniors in Brant-Haldimand-Norfolk counties. 5 registrants = 1 bus load. Our goal is to support 405 buses this year!

Join us at the starting gate in the Earl Haig parking lot on September 8th, 2019. The un-timed colour fun run for people of any age starts at 11:00 a.m.

Our scenic course follows the Grand River, looping at Birkett Lane and returning back to the Earl Haig parking lot. This year you can stop at the 5K mark or keep going for the bonus run!

After race completion, you will have access to Earl Haig Family Fun Park to celebrate Grandparent’s Day with us!

Pick up your Brantford BURST Race Kit which includes one Earl Haig pass, a t-shirt, a bracelet, and sun glasses at Earl Haig Family Fun Park during the hours of 11am – 8:30pm Monday- Saturday the week before Labour Day or on Labour Day 12-6pm. We’ll provide the colour along the route!

Looking forward to sharing an amazing day in support of building an age-friendly community through SKIP!
