775 athletes to run the paved Westside Legacy Trail

Windermere-zone schools raise funds for trail in 1, 3 or 5 kilometre run October 12th

Trail Tales

Editor’s Note: This is a brief update to last week’s ‘Trail Tales’ column.

After years of dreaming, designing, funding, constructing and now paving – the Westside Legacy Trail will host its first event on Thursday October 12th – Run For Dreams. The event was initiated by the grade 6/7 students of Windermere Elementary School to raise awareness for our outdoor community and provide leadership experience for the students. The event has a confirmed participation of 775 students from Edgewater to Canal Flats, and will be the Valley’s largest outdoor running event to date with a 1, 3 or 5 kilometre run on the new Westside Legacy Trail.

A special thanks to all the volunteers and organizations who have helped the students put the event together, especially Rocky Mountain School District 6, the Rotary Club of Invermere and Crazy Soles.
