The Thursday sessions take place at Laurier Park (13221 Buena Vista Rd NW) & Whitemud Park North (13909 Fox Drive NW).

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.
