Walk & Run for rare

September 22, 2019

Riverbluffs Park, Cambridge

Join in for a walk or fun-run to help protect and conserve land in Waterloo Region and Wellington County. The Walk & Run for rare is supporting our Turn the Map Green campaign  every $2 raised protects 1 square meter of environmentally sensitive land in perpetuity. If you want to get outdoors to support nature with your family, friends, children, or co-workers, join us to Turn the Map Green one step at a time.

Four different routes to choose from:

  • 5km fun run: this route goes past the ECO Centre to a designated turnaround spot, and then back to the ECO Centre for a true 5km run (no chip timing provided).
  • 4.5km adventurous walk: this route includes the rare side trails giving you views of the cliffs, Grand River, and osprey nest.
  • 3.5km walk: this route is great for those wanting a route that is accessible to strollers and dogs.
  • 1km Turtle Trek: NEW route this year for children wanting to walk/run a very short 1km loop and then take a shuttle bus to the ECO Centre for the celebratory BBQ. Recommended for ages 8 and under.
