Harvest Moon Run 2020

Now that the race season that never was is coming to a close, the Regina Road Runners will come together for a relaxing fall, fun run – in the dark!, with social distancing. Walkers are welcome!

The event is on Saturday September 26th – the last event from the RRRC for 2020. There will be a short briefing at 18:45, and the running/walking shall begin at 19:00.  We will gather and run from the outside of the Lumsden Hotel and Steak Pit, 30 2nd Avenue, Lumsden.

The course will be a breath-taking (it could be cold, and yes – there is probably a hill) tour of parts of Lumsden.

This is a fun run to enjoy the company of other runners, reminisce about what you would have done if there had been a race season and enjoy fall in the Qu’Appelle Valley. It isn’t a race and won’t be timed, but it will be fun! Registration is not required and there is no cost.

This is a night race in late September and sunset occurs early. A headlamp or flashlight is required. Reflective clothing is required.

Following the run/walk, everyone is invited to gather (not too close!) at the Lumsden Hotel and Steak Pit for appetizers and beverages.

26th Annual Flatlanders Road Race

https://raceroster.com/events/2020/32455/flatlanders-road-race-2020

The 2020 Flatlanders Road Race will be a virtual event that can be completed over a 1 week period of time. This allows us interesting options like allowing people to sign up for more than one distance if they choose and to remove any restrictions on people wishing to walk any of the distances.

Our charity this year is Theo’s Challenge.

Regina Beach Trail Race

The Regina Beach trail race is a fun summer event with 5, 10 and 15 km options for runners to explore the Regina Beach area along paved trails, along roads and more rugged trails for longer distances. There will also be a 700 meter Children’s Race. The Children’s race will start at 9 AM and the other races will start after all the children have finished

The 2020 race is currently scheduled for July 11, 2020. If it is not possible to proceed on that date, August 8 has been set aside as an alternate date. Should our current situation with the virus not change enough to hold a physical race, we will look at holding a virtual race.

A decision will be made on how to proceed by June 10, 2020.

This year the proceeds from the race will be donated to Theo’s Challenge.

2020 Prediction Mile/Kipchoge Challenge

The turnout at the Regina Road Runners 2020 Prediction Mile was great with 20 participants plus timers and observers. The goal was to predict your running/walking time and then try to match it (no watches allowed, except for the timers). The event was run in 2 heats.  Art and Vicky Bonnell coordinated the timing with participants assisting when they weren’t on the track.  The larger group lead to a lot louder cheering and more high fives for the athletes as they completed each of their seven laps.

There were ties for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th but everyone won as we all had fun.

The 1st annual Kipchoge challenge took place following the Mile.  Kipchoge ran a sub 2 hour marathon which is a pace of 34 seconds for 200 meters.  Several participants ran as a pack to attempt that pace. The times varied from 31 seconds through to 40 seconds.  Some very impressive speed!

The energy burned cheering and running/walking was restored with pizza and pop and lots of socializing afterwards
