Earth Run and Fall Festival
Saturday, October 19Free
The Rouge is home to many historic and significant travel paths. Indigenous peoples used these paths since time immemorial, running from community to community delivering messages, for protection, for ritual and for sport. Then, and now, Indigenous athletes are considered masters of distance running, and are counted among the most esteemed runners in Canadian history. In celebration of this proud and enduring legacy of Indigenous athleticism, Rouge National Urban Park invites visitors to reconnect with nature and follow in the footsteps of more than 10,000 years of human history within the Rouge Valley.
Move through the fall colours, get active and enjoy an array of cultural programming throughout the day.
The Earth Run in the Rouge consists of a 10k and 5k course. Registration for the 5k is FREE for youth 17 years of age and under! There will also be a free kids 1k run. Register and learn more about the Earth Run in the Rouge: http://www.5peaks.com/rouge-earthrun

A collaborative event hosted in partnership with the Rouge National Urban Park First Nations Advisory Circle and Parks Canada.
