The Thursday sessions take place at Capilano Park (109A Avenue & 50 Street), Gold Bar Park (10955 50 Street), Goldstick Park (3910 103 Avenue) & Rundle Park (2909 113 Avenue). Our Fall schedule will be posted here, when available. Please note that the following park usage may change, as it is subject to approval from the City of Edmonton.
What to wear
Footwear: Running shoes or winter boots with good tread for traction, and laces so the shoes stay on the participants feet in the mud/slush.
Clothing: Comfortable clothing that you can move in! We recommend long pants and long sleeves, so you don’t get scratched by branches and prickles. On cool days/evenings, dress in layers so you can take a layer off when you warm up.
