River Trek is on May 13.
River Trek is an exciting and challenging trek that consists of sections of pavement, gravel roads, hills and cross country trails. The off-road section is about 5 miles (8km) long.
Along the way, you will see vast open plains, old homesteads, landmarks used by the pioneers, the magical prairie sunrise, wagon trails, deep cut and sloping hills that surround you, breathtaking views of the South Saskatchewan River, an abundance of wildlife and natural vegetation, flocks of birds, Indian tipi rings, a bison jump and an awesome sunset to bring you home.
Eston River Trek is divided into seven different events, so runners and walkers of all ages can participate.
