This is an intermediate-level course with a mixture of single-track and double-track trails. The scenery is beautiful as it over-looks the Moose Jaw River. The rolling hills, uneven terrain and quick turns along the bike trails will keep you light on your feet and your heart pumping!
 
5K ROUTE:
Starting at the Pavillion in Connor’s Park, the 10km route will follow the single-track trail south towards the Moose Jaw River (past playground equipment) for almost a km.  You will cross the bridge into Tatawaw Park (former Wild Animal Park). This will bring you to a road that you will cross entering the hiking trails hidden in the trees. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and watch your footing with the quick turns, roots, and small inclines and declines.  This is approximately 1.2 km in length. When approaching the volunteers, they will direct you to take a left down the paved road for a short out and back (approx. 250m) before heading into more trails on the left side of the road. You are almost done! Coming out of the trails, you will cross the 7th Ave bridge and follow a fast open trail back to the start/finish line! **Map is below.

NOTE: This section will be ran a second time later on in the route. When the hiking trail ends, you will turn right on the paved road towards the water station and volunteers. They will direct you to double-track trail on the right that leads to a second bridge crossing. You will be back on a single-track trail with very little tree cover exposing you to the sun for about another km before crossing a third bridge (suspension bridge) leading you towards Wakamow Valley. Just before the halfway mark (4.8 km), you will take a sharp right turn back in the trails with a gradual climb that overlooks the river. You will approach a fence at the highest point of the run which you will follow for about 1.5 km before heading down a steep hill that merges into the hiking trail you ran earlier in the event. When approaching the volunteers for the second time, they will direct you to take a left down the paved road for a short out and back (approx. 250m) before heading into more trails on the left side of the road. You are almost done! Coming out of the trails, you will cross the 7th Ave bridge and follow a fast open trail back to the start/finish line! **Map is below.

ABOUT DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia and accounts for 60 percent to 80 percent of dementia cases (Alzheimer's Association, 2020). Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks (NIA, 2017). In 2010, an estimated 35.6 million people worldwide were living with dementia, a number that is expected to double by the year 2030 (Stats Canada, 2016).
