Wednesday Night Run with Steve (Free)

Wednesday - 6:30pm

This run is for people who would like a mid-week distance run to complement their training, but runner's of all abilities are welcome to come out. If you are new to the group, Steve will run with you to familiarize you with the routes. The run is a tempo run of various distances: 8km, 10km, 13km, or 17km. Summer routes include Laurel Conservation (out and back) , and Hillside Park to Bechtel Park and back. For the winter months they run through the University campus and on to Keats Way where there are numerous cut-off points. While this run is a tempo run, all are welcome. You will always have someone to run with.

TNT - Tuesday Night Trail Run (Free)

Tuesday - 6pm

The parking lot at Sir John A. Macdonald High School on Erbsville Road is the place to be at 6:00pm on Tuesday nights! Come join a fun group of off-roaders if you want a great evening of trail running in the Columbia Forest. Aside from fun and camaraderie, the trail runs provide incredible hill workouts and a welcome respite from the high temperatures, humidity, and smog that we slug through during summer, as well as excellent training for the Run for the Toad trail race in September. New runners are always welcome, but expect tricky footing and a fast-pace run!!
