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.

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.

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.
