Originally, Mountain of Hope was set up by RRRC member Lee Ubell, raising money for the Burn Unit at the Regina General Hospital, to honour a close family member. Lee created an event that is different from most other running events in Regina. The race is held at White Butte, on relatively rugged terrain, runs in the evening, hosts a simple but hearty post-race meal of chilli, and each participant receives a piece of artwork as a completion prize.
In 2012, the Regina Road Runners took over the coordination of Mountain of Hope. The RRRC intends to carry on the spirit of what Lee started, including the artwork. However, in order to have artwork, we need an artist! If anyone is willing to make a piece of art that can be shared with 60 or so runners, please contact me at events -at- reginaroadrunners.ca.
