Family Trail Walk/Run Club

Saturday 19 May 2018, 08:00am - 09:00am

With sunshine and warm weather finally here, what better time to make some small changes to your family routine that can have a big impact on your health and happiness? Made possible by the Healthy Kids Community Challenge Leeds and Grenville, North Grenville's Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture is inviting you to "power off and play" with neighbours and friends this season!

Beginning Saturday, May 19, a new Family Trail Run/Walk Club will meet EVERY SATURDAY MORNING at 8 am at Veterans' Park (beside the North Grenville Municipal Centre - look for the “tank"). The weekly meet up will include a group warm up and cool down between which families and friends can run or walk on the trails together. You don't need to commit to every weekend – participation will be tracked based on age and will culminate in a fun end of summer party with awards and prizes.

This will be a family club, welcoming all ages and abilities. A variety of routes and distances will be mapped out to walk or run, including some routes which are stroller and wagon friendly. The club will continue meeting through the end of September and offers a great training opportunity for those working up to the Neon Night Fun Run fundraiser for Childhood Cancer on September 22.

Local volunteers Kristin Strackerjan and Nancy Peckford are working together with Parks, Recreation & Culture staff to build a club that will endure long after the summer ends. Others interested in getting involved can email Tammy Hurlbert, Recreation Coordinator, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Pre-registration is not required. Can't make it Saturday mornings? Those who want to “power off and play” on their own schedule or more frequently can download a tracking form here along with instructions to let us know you are participating. You will be included in our end of summer awards party too!
