Sustainablity

Waste Management: There will be garbage bins at the event site and Recycle Everywhere will be bringing reycling bins that will be place at the event site and on race course at our water refill stations. A compost bin will be beside our refreshment tent for you to drop your bananna peels.

Green Hydration with BYOB "Bring Your Own Bottle": Stay hydrated and keep our environment clean by bringing your own refillable water bottle on race day. You will be responsible for carrying your bottle throughout the event. Water refill stations will be avaliable along the race route. 


RACE ROUTE

As soon as course details have been finalized, we will post the official information here.

We will be using the Assiniboine Park official race routes for our 5K and 10K as well as a measured 3K. Our 3K is still chip timed, event though it is not an official sanctioned route.
