THE COURSE

 

The course starts in one of Edmontons most beautiful parks.  Louise McKinney Park, just south of the Shaw Convention Centre is the front door to the river valley parks system and a gateway to the trails throughout the city.

The 5km event heads west along the paved trails going under the Lower Level Bridge. Athletes will be directed to turn south along the river to turnaround just before the 105st (Walterdale) bridge. Athletes will return along the same course heading past the start point. Atheltes will be directed to turn left and climb the final 300m to the finish!

The 10km event completes the above listed portion but rather than climbing to finish, athletes will continue East along the paved trail through the Riverside Community. The course will take athletes under the Dawson Bridge and into Dawson Park to the turnaround point. Athletes will return along the same route and will be directed to turn Right and climb the final 300m to the finish!

 

Refreshments are served at three aid stations along the route (2.5km, 5km & 7.5). Your choice of Sports Drink or water will be provided.

 

After passing the finish line please move forward 200 meters.

Refreshments and Snacks:  Just past the finish, you will find fruit, muffins & more! We will provide warm and cool drink as well as a great post event meal from our friends at Opa Souvlaki!
