Events and Route Maps

This year we have expanded to three events:

3 KM Walk: This non-competitive event is intended for walkers of all ages and abilities. This event will not be chip-timed and results will therefore not be recorded. The 3 KM walk takes place on a fully paved trail (other than a 200-metre flat section on grass near the start/finish line) with one minor hill.

5 KM Run/Walk: This event is intended for either runners or walkers. This event will be chip-timed and results will be recorded. The 5 KM run/walk takes place on a fully paved trail (other than a 200-metre flat section on grass near the start/finish line) with one minor hill. There is a water station near the half-way point of the route.

10 KM Run: This event is intended for runners. This event will be chip-timed and results will be recorded. The 10 KM run takes place on a combination of paved and gravel trails (with a 200-metre flat section on grass near the start/finish line) and has several hills throughout. Water stations will be located near the 2.5 KM and 7.5 KM points of the route.

Bag Check

A complimentary bag check will be available for participants on race day starting at 8:30 AM at the Argyll Community League near the start/finish line. Items will be available for pick up until 12:45 PM. Bags will not be provided so please bring your own.

Water Stations

There will be a water station located at the start/finish line and a second water station located on the course for the 5 KM run/walk and the 10 KM run.


Post-Race BBQ

A free community BBQ, sponsored by Team Edmonton, will take place near the start/finish line after the race. Everyone is welcome, including participants, volunteers, and spectators. No registration is required for the BBQ.

Team Edmonton is a local non-profit organization that offers a free communications platform aimed at promoting locally volunteer-run (or low-cost) LGBTQ2S+ inclusive sports and recreational activities.


Parking

We encourage you to carpool, walk, ride, or take public transit to the event. There is also free onsite parking available in the paved parking lot located Northeast of the Argyll Community League and ample street parking along the perimeter of Argyll Park.
