The Thick-Skinned 21k – https://www.plotaroute.com/route/2089012
From our startline, you will head north and loop Laurier Park to access Quesnel Bridge. Once over the bridge athletes will follow Fort Edmonton Park Road and access the trail system to loop the park. Athletes will return over Quesnel Bridge and follow the roadway along the south side of the park to begin their second lap. Do another loop and come to the finishline!
The Toasty 10k
The Toasty 10k will be 1 lap of the above route.

The Frosty 5k will be a simple out and back.
True winter has actually set in (it’s been a while!). We want to ensure the safety of our athletes – AND our volunteers. While athletes can dress for the weather, and stay warm through racing – volunteers stand still! We have set out the following as a guideline.
- At temperatures of -20C (without the wind-chill), the events may be run at the Race Committee’s discretion, under a modified format (such as a shortened course or a modified start time). The Race Committee will consider the temperature trends, wind chill factors, and track conditions expected during the event before making their decision.
- At temperatures below -25C, the events will be cancelled, or may be run WITHOUT volunteer support.
- At any air temperature, any difficult weather conditions such as strong winds, high air humidity, heavy snow, or icy track conditions will result in the Race Committee consulting with the leaders of the participating teams to modify, postpone or cancel the event.
- A decision to cancel may be made prior to race day based on the forecast or snow conditions, or it may be made on race day based on current weather conditions and the forecast. Event updates and/or the final decision will be posted on our website and/or posted on the facebook page. We will do our best to notify participants via email as well.
