Mountain of Hope 2017 registration open

With new events added last year – a 9  km event and a kids event, Mountain of Hope keeps getting bigger and better. Now take a sneak peek at what is waiting for you at this year.

 

There are nice gentle, rolling hills, prairie views, some brush, scenic sunsets and occasionally the odd mud puddle.

The mud puddles might sound unappealing, but if you’re looking for a memorable race, this is it!

Mountain of Hope takes place June 17, in the evening. This is as close as we can get to the solstice this year – a nice run on the (nearly) longest evening of the year.

Come run through the canopy of trees and enjoy the trails!
If you can’t wait until June 17 to test out the trails Race Director Jason is offering a chance to run and train on the trails. (all levels will be accommodated). Walk or shuffle or run – Jason will be at White Butte every Wednesday at  6.00 pm.    An amazing opportunity! NO person will be left behind for the crows to pick your bones!
The proceeds from this race go to the Burn Unit at Regina General Hospital.

Register online at Race Roster. If you need some more information – all the details are here on the website or check out Getting Prepared for MoH.

The race is capped at 100, so register soon! (and, the price goes up on June 1, so get signed up soon!) RRRC members receive a discount on the registration price.

 

2017 Boot Race

https://raceroster.com/events/2017/12770/rrrc-boot-race-2017

When – May 14, 2017
Where – A.E. Wilson Park
Details available at the registration link.

Boot Race is a 5 km handicap race. For those who have never run a handicap race, or need a reminder, each runner starts the race based on his/her best 5 km time in the past year. If everyone matched his/her time exactly, everyone would cross the finish line together. BUT, if you can beat your best time, you come across the line just a little bit ahead of everyone else.

Come on out and have some fun.
Maps will be provided electronically, closer to the event.
Watch for others using the pathways.

23rd Flatlanders Road Race

https://raceroster.com/events/2017/11744/flatlanders-road-race-2017

The Regina Road Runners Club Flatlanders Road Race is an annual event featuring half-marathon, 10km, and 5km distances.  The event starts and finishes on the trace at the Canada Games Athletic Park.  Race day is Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Canada Games Athletic Complex (Douglas Park Track) Assiniboine Avenue starting at 9:30 am.

Package pick-up is at the Canada Games Athletic Complex (Douglas Park Track) on Friday, September 29th from 12:00 noon – 6:00 pm or on race day, 7:30 – 9:00am.

Race start times are staggered to reduce congestion at the start, to bring finishing times closer together, and for safety reasons so that faster 5 km and 10 km runners don’t have to run back against all of the other runners.

The race is run almost completely on the pathway within Wascana Park, with a few short pieces run on roadways within the park.  The course is well marked with arrows and Km signs, as well as course marshals stationed at important intersections.  Water is provided on the course at 5 stations.

Total race entries for all distances combined will be capped at 500 runners for 2017.

The Flatlanders Road Race is an inclusive event for runners of all abilities.  Walkers are welcome in the 5 km and 10 km events.  The Regina Road Runners Club strives to keep registration fee reasonable by making the commemorative t-shirt an option when registering.

RRRC Wascana Wander – April 22

Participants in the Weekly Trail Series the past two years will have had a sneak preview of the Wascana Wander. Now it has finally evolved into its own event!

The Wascana Wander is part trail race, part scavenger hunt. There is no set course (other than on the trails at Wascana Trails). It is meant to get you out on the trails, exploring and trying trails you haven’t tried before. Because there is no set course, there is no specific distance either.

The objective will be to explore the area and find several books that have been hidden throughout the area. Each participant will have a number and will have to bring back the corresponding page from each book (don’t worry bibliophiles – the books on course were destined for recycling anyway).

There will also be a kids version of the Wander. For kids, the course will be marked – with a short distance between 500 and 1000 m.

There is an option for runners to do up to 3 loops (with a new number each loop). To enter the second or third loop, the runner must be within the time cut-off and have collected all the pages. The final loop will be dark so runners will be required to carry a headlamp and cell phone, as well as wear reflective gear. The time limits are 90 minutes for loop 1, 75 minutes for loop 2 and 60 minutes for loop 3.

Where: Wascana Trails
When: April 22 (if the trails are determined to be too wet and potentially dangerous, we will delay one week)
Time: Kids event starts at 5:00 PM, everyone else at 5:30 PM. Be there early enough to get your race bib.

Registration is online at Race Roster

Cost: The event is free to register, but in order to get your bib – please bring non-perishable food for the Food Bank or used clothing for Salvation Army.

There will also be a collection for anyone wishing to donate to the local library.
