Pasqua Lake Trail Challenge 2014 – registration open!

Get your trail shoes out and your game face on – we are now “live” to accept registrations for Pasqua Lake Trail Challenge.

Last year, Race Director Rick Minett took us on challenging, exciting course that wound up and down the hills. The course is new for the 3rd year in a row – Rick is always eyeing up improvements for your running experience! There will be a tame, no hills 5 km distance that will give runners who are not familiar with trails a nice introduction. There will be two longer options that are more challenging – 7.5 km for those looking to challenge the hills of Pasqua Lake and 15 km for those looking to conquer them!

Pasqua Lake Trail Challenge – A Success!

Some folks were lucky enough to win some great draw prizes, sponsored by Track and Trail and Sport Chek. Continue reading
