Hitting the Trails with Dirty Feet

Last Sunday, over 360 participants ran in the first North Face Dirty Feet Trail Run of the season in the Batchelor/Lac Du Bois Grasslands Park.

It was the second year in a row that our entire family has participated in the 5km event and the kids were far more engaged this year!


My husband ran with our six year old while I ran with our youngest. It was a little chilly at the start of the race for the little one, but it quickly became comfortable enough for her to shed a layer.  The rain that threatened to fall before the race never materialized and all of us racers enjoyed the calm weather and dry terrain.


My daughter ran/walked the entire way, stopping only to take off

Kicking off the 2016 Dirty Feet Race Series with the Family

Our family took part in the North Face Dirty Feet Snowshoe Fun Run/Walk at Stake Lake last Sunday. It was our second year participating in this fun 5km event on the snowshoe trails maintained by the Overlander Ski Club and the conditions were excellent!

We were greeted with a beautiful, sunny morning and plenty of fresh powder when we arrived at Stake Lake that day.  Vehicles and drivers generously provided by River City Nissan shuttled us (and all of our gear!) from the parking lot to the location of the start of the race.

Of course, we took the customary pre-race photo before we set off on our snowshoeing adventure as a family, along with just under 100 other participants!RSCN3842

I raced with our 6 year old, while my husband stuck to the back with our 5 year old as she tends to check things out at a much slower pace. My son kept up the pace by chatting with me throughout the race, singing songs and even surprising me with periodically running 10 second intervals!DSCN3832

When we finally arrived at the finish line, it wasn’t long before my son and I realized that he was about 20 minutes faster than last
