Race #2 – Happy Trails!

We are excite to announce the much anticipated 2nd event in the  “5k Fun Walk/Run Challenge” where you complete 3 or more of these challenges to earn a Glorious Series Medal and the adoration of all your friends and family who lack this experience and medal!  There WILL be a special prize for participants that complete every single event this year.  Trust me… you want to get this prize! (Please identify to me that you plan to try get this prize in the comments to race director at registration)

This event is a virtual event that can be completed between June 12-22, 2020 with June 12 7:00pm and June 13 Noon being kickoff Zoom meetings to go over the rules. 

We may be in phase 1 or 2 of this COVID world, but all participants will respect the Chief Public Health Officers rules.  People should ABSOLUTELY NOT be doing this as an organized group run.  If you are doing this with any group arrangement do it according to the rules of the day from the GNWT, exercising physical distancing at all times.  READ THE WAIVER CAREFULLY.

We will suggest a number of  trails you can run in Yellowknife.  Plan your own route outside and physically distant from others and complete it at your own pace and when convenient to you. It’s your choice. Walk/Run/Roll – anything non-motorized – just be legal and be safe! Do it on your own time between June 12-22! June 12 and 13 Zoom information meetings will be the starting coral to your week of adventure!
