Press Run / 2018 Survey

Press Run

The Grande Prairie Run/Walk Club will no longer organize the Press Run due to lack of volunteers and limited participation. We have decided to concentrate our efforts on the Brian Harms Memorial Race (Sunday, May 13, 2018)

We want to thank the Grande Prairie Daily Herald Tribune for 40 years of support.


2018 Survey

We are looking for feedback from the running and walking community in Grande Prairie for the direction the club should be taking in 2018. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey.


2/14 Challenge & Triple Crown

This year, we continued our tradition of the 2/14 challenge (a draw involving participants in the Brian Harms Race and the Press Run) and selected Kelsey Biggs! She has won $214 to use at any of our membership sponsors (Ernie’s; Walk, Run & More; Intersport).

This year’s Triple Crown (Brian Harms Race, Press Run, Roots & Ruts) went to Warren Magrum who won a Garmin Forerunner 35 from Walk, Run & More.
