Trails and Ales Fun Run/Walk

September 30

Do you enjoy walking and running in the great outdoors? Do you also love a great craft ale? Are you 19 years of age or older? Well, here is the perfect event to combine these two wonderful things at the Ganong Nature Park!

A unique fundraiser for Ganong Nature Park, Trails and Ales is a fun afternoon of walking or running through the forest and fields of our spectacular waterfront Park. You’ll be rewarded for your efforts with not only stunning views, but tasty, cold, craft beer from our friends at Gore Farm BREWERY in St. Stephen, and Picaroons Traditional Ales . Terry’s Beef N More of St. George is also a generous donor for the post-race BBQ.

Trails and Ales Event Details

The course is approximately 5km. It’s not exact, so if you’re looking to set a PR, this might not be the race for you. The trail is just that…a trail. So, come prepared for varying trail conditions (i.e. wet spots, rough terrain) with appropriate clothing and footwear. Also, it is your responsibility to ensure you don’t impair your ability to navigate the trails safely.
You’ll enjoy the perks of beer along the route. Also included in your registration is a BBQ, music, and other activities: sign up for the post-race Keg-Leg…be the first to carry a 20 litre keg of beer over a separate 100 metre course and win a growler!

Swag? You got it! A colourful Ganong Nature Park Buff that you can wear during the race to soak up the sweat (or beer).
