Race Day Information

Ten Mile Road Race

The 43rd annual ten-mile road race will start at 9 a.m. sharp at Lethbridge College. Runners will head north along Scenic Drive, head down the Lynx Trail path into the river bottom, follow along the paved trail to Ft. Whoop–Up, then loop back around and return the same way they started until reaching the finish line at Lethbridge College.

Four Mile Road Race

The family friendly four-mile race will start at 9:20 a.m. sharp at Lethbridge College. Participants will head north along Scenic Drive to Mountain View Cemetery, loop back from the main entrance of the Cemetery and return the same way they started until reaching the finish line at Lethbridge College. The four-mile event is perfect for competitive runners, as well as runners who would like to run, jog, or walk at a leisurely pace.

Both events are Chip Timed. A group warm-up before the race will be performed by the Lethbridge College Be Fit for Life centre.

High School Road Race Challenge

Are you a high school student running the four-mile race? Be sure to indicate your school on the registration form and you will be entered into our High School Road Race Challenge. We will take the two highest ranking males and two highest ranking females from each school and use their time to determine the 2016 champion. The winning school will be awarded the prestigious High School Challenge trophy!
