MEETING TIME HAS CHANGED FROM 8 AM TO 9 AM
Due to the Stampede Road Race using the Glenmore Reservoir pathway for the 1/2 Marathon route, it would be better for the runners to give them a chance to go through the area where we start our walk to delay our start time by one hour. I hope everyone can still make it. The time delay also means that I will pick up participants (only 1 so far) at the Heritage Train Station at 8:30 am.
THANK YOU to the generous people who are offering rides on their way to Glenmore Landing.
The paved pathway around the Glenmore Reservoir has barely been affected by the flood, there are only a few patches of mud on the path in the Weaselhead area and the bridge over the Elbow River is intact.
Description: We will start at the Glenmore Landing parking lot and walk around the entire reservoir, going through the South part first, Weaselhead, the ridge of the North section of the park, then over the Dam, on by the Rockyview Hospital, bypassing Heritage Park and finally returning to Glenmore Landing where participants can have lunch if they wish to do so.
