The Regina Beach Trail Race will be a virtual race this year. All of the details and registration can be found here:
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.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty we are living through, the 2020 Boot Race has been cancelled.
We look forward to seeing you at future events and in the meantime, please stay active and healthy.
Strength Training for Runners
RRRC is subsidizing a series of 4 weekly strength training sessions for club members. The training is for all members, whether beginners or those who have been running for decades. The focus will be on teaching people correct form and technique for the exercises to improve performance and reduce injuries. Cassandra from Level 10 fitness will lead us through a different series of exercises each week and will ensure we are performing them correctly and safely. The intention is that attendees will be able to continue to use the knowledge after the classes end.
Level 10 Fitness – 2124 Gordon Road, Trainer – Cassandra Serbu
Feb 26th, March 4th, 11th, and 18th, 7:30-8:30pm
Cost: $9/session x 4 sessions = $36
The effort and intensity will be up to individual attendees. Athletes will all benefit from participating.
Prediction Mile & Optional Kipchoge Challenge
January 18 at the Sportplex Fieldhouse.
The Prediction Mile will run at 5:30 PM. Be there by 5:15 to make sure you are ready to go at 5:30.
What is a Prediction Mile? You just have to predict how long it will take you to run one mile on the track and whoever is closest to their prediction, wins! No timing devices allowed though!
Optional Kipchoge challenge for any who are interested Here’s the details:
In 2019, Eliud Kipchoge broke the 2 hour barrier for the marathon in 1:59:40. He currently holds the world record of 2:01:39 (set in 2018 – the sub 2 hour pace isn’t recognized as a marathon record due to the conditions it was completed in). His incredible pace is equivalent to running 200 metres every 34.5 (or 34.0 for the sub 2-hour pace) seconds (for 42.2 km). Our goal is to see if we can manage Eliud’s pace for a short distance.
Distance: 1 mile (1.6 km / 1760 yards / 5280 feet / etc.)
Start location: Fieldhouse track, 1717 Elphinstone Street, Meet by the track.
Start time: 5:30 PM, January 18th, 2020
Cost: Members and Non-Members: Free. All ages are welcome.
RSVPs are required so that we get enough post-race snacks. To RSVP, email the Treasurer by Friday January 17, 2020.

What do I need? Whatever you need to run or walk seven complete laps of the outside lane at the Fieldhouse, plus one timing device.
Why a timing device? Everyone will take a turn running and a turn timing someone else, so everyone can participate, walkers or runners.
