What we're about
Calgary Trail Runners is a group dedicated to running the trails in and around Calgary and the surrounding rockies with other fun people. The group currently ranges from those comfortable and enjoying running for 1 hour on trails to those contemplating and competing in 100m+ ultras. A number of runs are out-and-back to accommodate all speeds and the majority of runs take place in the greater Bragg Creek area, 30 mins West of Calgary.
A few important items:
> Membership is a voluntary minimum $5 a year to cover website costs; please see the link on the left under "Membership dues". Any monies remaining after website costs will be donated to the Greater Bragg Creek Trail Association, who do a wonderful job of building and maintaining the trails we spend so much time on.
> New members, regardless of previous experience, are strongly encouraged to come out on our weekly Tuesday night runs. These runs have a variety of runners running a variety of paces, and we highly recommend you attend one of these runs prior to embarking on a longer weekend adventure, so as to calibrate your expectations on your experience with CTR.
> Runs are not "led" and are rather a fast wander based on someone's idea. We will do our ultimate best to create the safest environment to run in, but please be responsible for yourself and your impact on others' well-being and safety. By RSVPing "Yes" for any event you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your personal safety and liability, and acknowledge that we are not a professional organization or pro mountain/trail guides. You recognize that event organizers have no fundamental duty of care for your safety above the strictest legal definition of criminal negligence, and that we are most definitely not a tour company.
If that all sounds good, see you on the trails and hope you will join us soon!
