The third CAFKA Alley Cat Race invites you to explore your urban environment and the CAFKA.23 exhibits living within it on Sunday July 9 from 11:30 - 2:30 pm, RAIN OR SHINE. Reimagining a race format invented by bicycle messengers, participants will use a map to choose their own route to ride or roll to visit CAFKA.23 exhibits and complete activities as they travel between Uptown Waterloo to Downtown Kitchener.

Enter as an individual or group and feel free to use a costume or a team name to express yourself.

Starts at the Visitor Information Centre in Waterloo Park (10 Father David Bauer Dr.) between 11:30am and 12:00pm and ends in downtown Kitchener where we will gather to welcome finishers and announce results. Free entry and all ages. Register as an individual or group online at or in person at the event start.

Remember your safety gear, water, snacks, and whatever else you need to be safe and comfortable.
