Prairie Summit Run-It Adds 5 km Distance
Challenge yourself to a race on the scenic trails of Buffalo Pound Park, SK, September 27, 2015
The 5th annual Prairie Summit Run-It Trail Race, happening on Sunday, September 27, 2015, features a fun yet challenging 10 km and 25 km course on the scenic trails of Buffalo Pound Provincial Park near Moose Jaw, SK, for the reasonable registration fee of $50. All 10 km and 25 km runners will receive a sweet North Face grab bag that includes a North Face coupon, Smartwool socks, Kicking Horse coffee, a Cliff Bar and water bottle.
New for this year are a 5 km distance (which only costs $35 and includes the same grab bag, minus the socks) and a Kid’s Fun Run for ages four to 12. The Kid’s Fun Run, which takes place at noon, offers a 400 m loop course around the Rankins Campground for four and five year olds and a 800 m out-and-back course on the trails for the six to 12 year olds. Best of all, the Kid’s Fun Run is free and all racers will get a prize pack for participating.
The new 5 km race – a great option for cross country runners or those new to trail running – starts at 10:30 a.m. and will be a single loop of Joe’s Trail. The 10 km race also starts at 10:30 a.m. and will follow a different series of trails connected within the park. The 25 km race starts at 10:10 a.m. and will follow two loops of the 10 km course, plus one lap of the 5 km course. For park maps, course information and package pick-up details, check out the event website.
