Canadian Winter Revenge 2018
Canadian RVR '18
Some say Revenge is a dish best served COLD. Let's put that to the test. River Valley Revenge is presenting its second winter race through the beautiful Edmonton river valley, made even moreso by snow covered trails and frost tipped woodland.
You get what you train for. Have you got what it takes?
Two loops of the 25-km course that showcases natural, unmaintained trails in the Whitemud Nature Reserve. With some short but quick groomed sections, expect the rest of the route to have lots of gnarly single-track trails overlooking both sides of the Whitemud Creek. Save some energy for jumping fallen trees and other natural obstacles. This is a well supported distance for those wanting to do their first ultra, with options to just wave at cheering volunteers for experienced racers wanting to do a fast time. On this course, fast is a relative term.
Enjoy a tough but stunning 25-km loop that starts at one end of the Whitemud Nature Reserve and traverses up and down along the Whitemud Creek to a natural bird sanctuary, heading back through Fireball Ridge to chase the creek on the other side all the way back to the start. This is one of the toughest "half marathons" around, rewarding you with unbelievable views and the best on-course cheering and support.
It's our first winter relay! The 12.5-km loop done four times is quickly going to be a race favourite. The course enjoys the nicest views with a great mix of trails that will suit every runner, from those new to trails all the way to elites who will love trying to beat each other's FKTs. Two to four members per team.
Not ready for 25 kilometres but still want to enjoy the best views on a course that has a mix of everything ? Find a friend or family member and sign up to run a 12.5-km twice. All the fun and just enough challenges to make that finisher medal feel heavy around your neck.
New to trails? Experienced and wanting to have some fun on trails in the heart of the city? This course will have something for everyone: a bit of paved, some groomed, finishing off with a little gnarly and tough to make you glad the end is in sight.
