Who are we? The Youth Running Series (YRS) is a non-profit, volunteer-based, group of appreciative youth and parents who have benefitted from running, and who support the spirit of the running community. YRS was launched in 1996 by volunteers and the participating race directors, with the backing of Run Nova Scotia (RNS) YRS provides the youth of Nova Scotia with an opportunity to engage in running at all levels as a means to a healthy, active and positive lifestyle. YRS offers races of 0.5 K to 5 K in distance and encourages participation by those of all abilities. The series is geared to the youth. But parents, guardians or any others interested in taking part are welcome to run or walk these events. The YRS committee is entirely made up of volunteers. We are always looking for help during the races. If your kids enjoy running and you see the value of what YRS has to offer, consider giving your time for a single race or the entire season. To volunteer, please email YRS at firstname.lastname@example.org For more information please download our brochure here.
