Map: Rumsey


Currently there is a substantial snow cover in Rumsey area. This could change very quickly if we have couple of warm days. We are visiting the site next weekend and will make a decision if the event goes ahead or not, by the end of Sunday April 22. Please stay tuned!

Few people get to see this area of Alberta and it is indeed an incredible area to enjoy! Running can be fast and navigation can be challenging at this unique Alberta prairie park. And did I mention the hills!!!!! Come on out and you can experience it for yourself! Check back for further information as to courses and start times.

We need your help to make this event a success. Volunteer Here
