Saturday October 19, 2019    9:00 a.m.    Riverside Park, Cambridge, ON

This is the second of three events in our Run Pure & Simple series: running events with all the essentials and no bells and whistles. You get a great course, timing, water and an awesome atmosphere. 

If you've never run the trails at Riverside Park, you're in for a treat. This course is a rough/tough off-road experience. We can guarantee it will be roughly five kilometres! (This event is a parody of all the events that pretend to be 5k, but really aren't even close.)

All Run Pure & Simple events, including this one, are free to Run Waterloo members. Click Become a Member to the right to learn more.
