UPDATED OCT 17!
Due to construction, runners will begin at Bower Ponds and run out 5km, along the river to the top of 67th Street and then return on the same trail back to the finish. One big hill! But the good news is you get to run down it as well.
Beginning at Bower Ponds you will run along the river to 67th Street where you will cross over and head east up the hill. Near the top you will follow the path into McKenzie Trails, down a nice hill in the trees before leaving McKenzie area. You will run through the parking lot of Gaetz Lake Bird Sanctuary towards Lindsay Thurber where you will do a quick 1km out and back (don’t worry you do not go all the way up Michener Hill) before reconnecting with the river trail. Once back along the river you will run to Heritage Ranch and back to Bower Ponds.
