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.

2018 Wascana Wander – May 26

After the first Wascana Wander in 2017, the event is back!

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 105 minutes for loop 1, 75 minutes for loop 2 and 60 minutes for loop 3.

Where: Wascana Trails
When: May 26
Time: Kids event starts at 5:30 PM, everyone else at 6:00 PM. Be there early enough to get your race bib (bib pickup at 5:00 PM)

Registration is online at Race Roster

Cost: The event is $15 for adults and $5 for kids. Members will receive a full cost discount upon completing the registration, but in order to get your bib – all participants are asked to please bring non-perishable food item for the Food Bank, used clothing for Salvation Army or a donation to the Lumsden Library.

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

2017 Wascana Wander all wrapped up!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Wascana Wander. It was a fun event and the generous participants made some sizable donations to good charities. I delivered the food to the Regina Food Bank and clothing to Salvation Army. There was 57 pounds of food! And another 39 pounds of clothes! I will take the library donations ($110) this weekend. Thank you!

Finisher’s “medal” at Wascana WanderThe adult participants were all challenged to find 8 books on course, with a time limit of 90 minutes. They brought back pages corresponding to their bib number from each book they found. It must have been challenging – no one brought back 8 pages in time! I heard two ran up to 13 km, finding 6 books. Three folks did find 8 books and went out for a second loop, finding one of the two bonus books as well on the second loop.

I have presented the results below with lots of detail. Because there was a time limit, I tried to make it fair to those who returned on time and to those who found more books. A penalty was applied once 90 minutes elapsed and again for every time the person exceeded the average allowable time per book (9 minutes).
