Wintergreen Ekiden Relay
Wintergreen Ekiden Relay is back up and running and Color Right Now is running along with you as a key supplier of racing bibs, banners, signs, flags, tear drop flags, course markers & backdrops for Alberta marathons as well as marathons all over Canada.
We are having so much fun doing Ekiden at Wintergreen. With the Notorious P.I.G. food truck on site to feed y’all and Tool Shed beer available it’s turned into a great day of running and socializing. Join us for the best tail gate party ever!
Ever wondered what it’s like to run 18 holes of golf without having to actually hit a little tiny ball with a stick? You’ll find out on October 15! We’ll be utilizing cart paths around the golf course and trails over what used to be the ski hill!
Route: We’ve used a combination of golf cart path, Wintergreen access road and the old ski hill to give you five different routes all with their own challenges. Leg 2 and 3 runners will climb the old ski hill along the chair lift line to the top (yup, the chair lift is still there). It is a 1km tough climb so be prepared. The golf course is built on a slope so all legs will have some elevation change along the cart path. The cart path is 20% asphalt and 80% packed gravel path – very nice to run on. The approach to the ski hill is a dirt service road, the climb is single track and the descent is double track trail. With adding to leg 2 and 4 we are able to get closer to the traditional Ekiden distance of 42.2km
