Rockwood R.a.T Races
Starting on May 10th at 6:30p.m. and every Thursday following for an 8-week period, I’ll be putting on a weekly trail running race through one of the greatest inner-city parks North America has to offer. That’s right our very own Rockwood Park.
The goal of these events is to be as basic as possible. There will be no fancy start/finish line, flashy medal, or even volunteers cheering you on as you run into a fully stocked aid station every KM. Instead you’ll have an imaginary line, a high five at the end, and some tasty water waiting for you as you cross the finish line (must provide own cups/bottles).
There will be no online registration only on race day can you register. The fee to run these events will be $5 per race.
The course will be a well-marked 6.5km loop, so no one should get sided tracked. The route will also stay the same for the 8-week period. So, the more you run it the more familiar you will be with the route.
At the end of the 8 week period there will also be a little social to congratulate and thank everyone for taking part in these events. Information on the social will be available a little later in the season.
I look forward to seeing everyone this summer and feel free to share these events with anyone and everyone.
Happy training and I look forward to seeing everyone on the 10th of May.
