It’s that time of year again, when the longest day of the year brings people together to celebrate the beauty of life and the value of community.  After a successful inaugural run in 2016, Ulnooweg is proud to support the Ulnooweg Summer Solstice Run once again! 

We've added a 10k and 2k Kid's Run this year, along with finisher awards and a new medal!  Fuel up with post run pancakes at the Summer Solstice Breakfast Social (runners will receive tickets for hot breakfast, additional tickets can be purchased for family and friends).  Want to walk?  No problem!  Walkers are welcomed in the 5k Run.

To receive your custom shirt of choice, please register by May31 2017.

Let's celebrate the Summer Solstice and National Aboriginal Day together!

Please join our Running Community in celebrating healthy living and experiencing the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation.
