Run For Recovery is a timed trail race event taking place on Thursday, August 30. The races will occur at the scenic trails around Chickakoo Lake, located just 20 minutes North-West of Spruce Grove. There are several races organized for the evening, starting at 6:12pm, which are open to runners and walkers of all abilities.
The 12K Trail Run: A challenging 12 kilometer run, with each kilometer being symbolic of the traditional 12 Steps of Recovery.
The 6K Trail Run/Walk: An easier race that can be enjoyed whether you intend to jockey to be the first finisher, or if you just want to take a nice long stroll through the gorgeous Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area
The 1.2K Kid's Fun Run: A chance for the kids to stretch their legs and burn off some of their pent-up energy.
Following the races, there will be a fire and food.
