JENS AND I HAVE BEEN QUIETLY SEARCHING OUT THE LOCAL LANDSCAPE FOR THE BEST ROUTE FOR SOME YEARS NOW.
And, we think we have found it. We wanted to showcase the Drumheller Valley and some of its unique features, both natural and man-made. We wanted some hills and river front. Some pavement and some dirt. Of course, we had to look at logistics such as start and finish, volunteers and road closures. We are fortunate to have great sponsors and local support to make this all possible.
OUR COURSE TAKES YOU ALONG THE 10KM ROUTE, UP ALONG THE VERDANT VALLEY ROAD, BACK DOWN INTO THE VALLEY AND OUT TO HISTORIC WAYNE.
You are going to love this marathon. Attached is a link to the concept route map which is subject to some minor “tweaking” we suspect. The start and finish to all our races will be the same as last year, at the Badlands Community Centre in mid Drumheller.
Once you’ve run this one, you’ll agree there’s nothing out there quite like it.
Colin and Jens.
