Run Into Spring

It looks like spring is finally here to stay and we couldn’t be more excited about its arrival! Our biggest announcement right now is that the Aspen Garden Community Challenge is only 41 days away! On June 23, the start gun will sound for the first time ever in an event that we hope will become a tradition. We have some great ideas in place for the race including a scenic 10 km route in the Whitemud ravine and a great 5 km route perfectly suitable for families of all kinds. You can see the 10 km route by clicking on the following link

The 5 km route is accessible by following the following link: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/90537703
The races will be at 8:00 am and 10:30 am respectively and there will be food and entertainment afterwards that will last well into the afternoon.

We hope our first ever race is very successful and we know that you, the participants, will make it so.

The colours of spring are showing and new life is appearing all around us. In this season of growth and hope be sure to remember the families who continue to struggle. Although the hardest winter months are over there are still many families in this city and our community who need our support. Be an active citizen and find ways in which you can bring the hope and joy of spring to those who need it most.

Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather while it is here and we hope to see you in June for what promises to be an exciting race!
