Marsh Dash will be held for the fifth year, starting from Candy Cane Park near the Science Centre.
Marsh Dash is a running, walking, cycling scavenger hunt race. Solve the Clues, Run the marsh, Snap the pictures!
Can you answer this clue?
Has needles but is soft,
Is organic but resists decay,
Has cones but not ice cream,
If you ran the Marsh Dash in 2012, you should remember the answer!
Join us on Saturday June 14, 2014 at 9 AM for a running, walking and cycling scavenger hunt in Wascana Marsh. Form a team of 2-5 people, or register individually, and come prepared to walk, run, or cycle about 7 kilometres in the time limit (it’s a scavenger hunt – the course is not set!). Bring a digital camera to snap pictures as you find the answers to the clues. Juice and snacks will follow the race.
Registration is online.
Cost is $10 for members of RRRC or Friends of Wascana Marsh, $20 per non-member. An additional $5 will be charged after June 11 (race day registration). The online registration closes June 11, email events (at) reginaroadrunners.ca or register in person before the race after the 11th. Members need a promo code to receive the discount.
Speed is not the specific object of this event, so all walking, running and cycling teams will be competing against each other. However, to ensure that one mode of transportation is not favoured over another, different amounts of time will be given.
Walkers will have 90 minutes, runners 60 minutes and cyclists 45 minutes to complete the event.
Race will end at 10:30 followed by juice and snacks. Acknowledgment of the winners will be at 10:45.
Team spirit (aka costumes) are encouraged!
