Course & Event Details

The 5km  HBRMapLogo   

From the start area just below the Shumka Stage, athletes will head West along the paved trail next to the parking lot.  Athletes will take a left turn down the hill and then turn right onto the River Valley Trail system.  Participants will follow the trail, turning south just after the low level bridge.   Athletes will continue south along the trail through Irene Parlby Park.  Athletes will be forced onto 94th Ave and follow the roadway to the turnaround point at 101st and 95ave.  Volunteers will control traffic along this quiet residential roadway.

Returning the same way, athletes will climb back towards the start and then make the short switchback climb to the finish!

The 10km -   HBRMapLogo 

10km athletes begin the race as posted above, but after climbing back towards the start will be redirected to continue up Grierson Hill and then access the trail system at the top of the hill.  Running down the paved trail , athletes will continue East at the base of the trail along the pathway into Riverdale Community and past Dawson Bridge to the turnaround point. Return the same way towards the finish.  Climb up the east side of Louise McKinney Park (up heartbeat hill) then down to access the trail just below the Shumka stage which takes you to the short switchback climb to the finish!

Water stations will be available every 2.5km
