As mentioned on our homepage, we run trails every Sunday morning and Friday evenings too (with a light as needed!)
"Trail Apes" trail runs happen every Sunday beginning at 9 am. These are usually about 10k and nobody gets left behind! The Friday night trail runs are temporarily on hold, but will begin again soon. The details for the Friday and Sunday runs will be posted each Monday on the club Facebook page.
On Sunday, April 23rd, we hosted a special trail running event. The Trail Apes ran or cycled the RLC Virtual Hekkla in support of the Robert Carreau Memorial Fund. This fund was created in memory of SCRRW member Jessica Carreau’s brother, who was killed by a drunk driver when out for a morning run in November 2020. At the time, he was Head of School at Rosseau Lake College and a tradition of theirs was to run this Hekkla every Spring. It was Rob’s favourite event.
Our members raised over $700. All funds go towards Rob's memorial trail, that starts on RLC campus, but will run parallel to the highway where he died, in hopes of never having another tragic loss of this nature.
