Frequently Asked Questions:

Am I experienced/fit enough?

Chances are, Yes! Although our longest run is close to 12 km (on Saturday), we have allotted time and staff to accommodate all levels of runner. It would be a good idea to have tackled 12 km before, on a trail setting. If you are worried, send us an email at events@www.wildr.ca and we can answer your questions and talk about if this weekend is a good idea for you.

Where is the camp?

Our base camp will be at Beauvais Provincial Park in the group camping area. From there, we will travel out to different locations in the castle.  There are so many amazing spaces to trail run in South Western Alberta, but we have hand picked a few gorgeous spaces for this adventure!

What will I learn?

You will learn from both the set-up ‘lectures’ and learning sessions. You will learn about your own specific mobility and strength, how to train to improve, and how to plan your training runs. What you learn on the trails, well that’s another story, and we are excited to learn along side you, the mountains have a lot to teach us!
