The Moonlight Run is southern Alberta's largest road race! With a 6K run/walk and a 10K run, there is something for everyone to participate in. The race starts at 8:00 PM from CASA and follows a route into the river valley before returning to CASA.
Moonlight Run 2019 will be held in honour of our former Moonlight Run Committee member Brent Botfield who passed away just a few months ago. Brent had been involved with the Moonlight Run and the broader running community for a number of years and was a big contributor with other events as well, the Lethbridge Airshow being his biggest passion. We will miss Brent at this year's event but are thankful for the many great moments we shared.

Strollers are allowed but are encouraged to start towards the back of the group. There are no dogs allowed in either event.
There will be overall awards for the top male and female finishers in both the 6K and 10K events:
Medals will be awarded to the top five participants in each age category for both male and female.
The medal presentation will begin immediately after the event in CASA's community events room.
