Wilderness park site of walk/run

The Willow Creek Wilderness Walk and Run has taken great strides to establish itself as a fixture in southern Alberta.
The event held each spring for five consecutive years takes
runners and walkers on five- and 10-kilometre and half marathon routes through River Valley Wilderness Park.
“The feedback we’ve had is that the route is just awesome,” organizer Stasha Donahue said. “People from out of town love the Wilderness Park trails.”
Donahue conceived the idea of a walk and run five years ago when she was looking to compete in a local half marathon event.
When she was considering a route Donahue settled on one that would leave town, cross the Mackenzie bridge and delve into River Valley Wilderness Park.
The run and walk is geared for participation by people of all ages and athletic ability.
“It’s entry level,” Donahue said. “If people are just starting a fitness program it would be a good goal to work on. If you’re a serious half marathon runner it’s early in the season so it’s a good start for the season.”
