Terwillegar Trail Run and Walk 2022 @ Riverbend Community Hall
Oct 1 @ 7:45 am – 7:45 pm

Together we will make a difference for Albertans facing cancer.

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we announce that the 10th anniversary edition of the Terwillegar Trail Run and Walk will be held on Saturday October 1, 2022 in beautiful Terwillegar Park.

The TTRW is understandably the highlight of the year for us, however we would like our anniversary to be an extra special event so we’re busy planning the walk and run courses, breakfast menu, activities for the kids, great anniversary swag and more. Please stay tuned.

Our focus, as in past years, is to raise badly needed funds for the many Alberta men who are battling prostate cancer as well as those supporting them through their challenge. Funds raised in the last 9 years through the generosity of participants, volunteers and sponsors have directly and positively impacted research into new and exciting diagnostic and treatment innovations.

Please save the date. We’re looking forward to seeing you on October 1. Please visit us at https://www.terwillegartrailrun.com

ABOUT US

Who are we?  We are the PLTC Multisport Foundation.  We were not “founded” or “formed” but evolved organically over many years, drawn together by the sheer magnetism of friendship, camaraderie and an abiding passion for physical activity and personal challenge. We are as close to a family as you can get without having the same last name.

This year’s event will, once again, enthusiastically support the crucial work of those dedicated to finding new and innovative tools and strategies that will make life better for Albertans facing prostate cancer.

Many thanks to those who provided feedback on previous events. With the help of your input, we believe every future Terwillegar Trail Run and Walk will provide an even greater opportunity to challenge yourself and to enjoy the company of friends and family while making a difference for the 43 Albertans who hear the words “you have cancer” every day.

COURSE DESCRIPTION/INFORMATION – 7.5KM WALK

The walk will begin at the trail head at the end of Riddell Street, at the top of Terwillegar Park. Event participants will be escorted to the start location from the Riverbend Community Hall by race volunteers.

At the trail head, walkers will descend into the park on a wide, smooth gravel trail that opens onto an open field.  At the bottom of the hill, the route will follow the park perimeter trail for about 4 km; the trail is wide, smooth and suitable for trail-style strollers.

There is one aid station on the walk route at about the halfway point. After circling the park the walkers will return up the hill along the trail and through the residential streets to the Riverbend Community Hall for post-walk refreshments.  Race volunteers will escort walkers through the 7.5 km course. The walk is dog-friendly as Terwillegar Park is an off-leash area.

COURSE DESCRIPTION/INFORMATION – 10KM RUN

The run will begin at the trail head at the end of Riddell Street, at the top of Terwillegar Park. Event participants will be escorted to the start location from the Riverbend Community Hall by race volunteers.

The trail immediately gets gnarly, narrow and cluttered with roots and rocks. Participants quickly descend to the bottom of the river valley, which opens to a large field. Over the next kilometer, the trail narrows and frequently intersects the park perimeter trail as runners dodge in and out of trees. To prepare participants for the grind ahead two aid stations are on the course, the first is at the 3.3km mark.

After leaving the aid station, the run course features single track sections of trail, meandering around numerous ponds and punctuated with short, steep climbs.  This part of the trail is littered with roots and rocks that will challenge runners.  Much of this section is completely sheltered by low-hanging tree coverage along the way.  The second aid station is at the 6.3 km mark, it will be a welcome sight to participants after a tough sustained climb out of the river valley.  After a short out and back, a long smooth trail descent will eventually cross the park entrance road. The trail finishes with a steady climb out of the park to the start/finish and a short walk back to the Riverbend Community Hall for post-run refreshments.

PARTICIPANT AID STATIONS

There will be two aid stations on the course: the first one will support both the run and walk participants, the second will support the run. The aid station will be manned by two volunteers at each station, and refreshments and trash containers will be available to runners.

Aid station #1 – At 3.3 km on the run course and walking route, along the perimeter road on the north side of the park.

Aid Station #2 – At the 6.5 km mark on the run course at the Heffernan Drive trail head.

Have a wonderful time in the park! Thank-you for participating and making this event a tremendous success!
