The Purpose - This event will raise funds for local impact programs and charities and help bring awareness to addictions and substance abuse in the Tri-Municipal and greater Edmonton areas. In bringing people together without judgement and without prejudice we, as a community, can more effectively support and guide our loved ones through the recovery journey. 

The Run - Why 12K? The number "12" is symbolic of the traditional 12 Steps of Recovery those struggling with addictions go through during the recovery process. Why "Trail"? The effort required to overcome the obstacles on the trail represents the difficulty in overcoming the cycle of addiction. This race is for all ages with trails for all abilities.
