Timeless Race 2018

father time

It’s back!

Join the GP Run/Walk Club on July 12 for the epic TIMELESS RACE!

When: Thursday July 12, 2018
Participants MUST check-in with Father Time no later than 6:30PM, the race starts at 7:00PM.

Where: It’s a secret! You will receive an email the evening of Tuesday July 10 informing you of the location (it will be in Grande Prairie or close proximity).

Who: This event is open to everyone, but children must have the ability to predict their own time AND be accompanied by an adult (if 12 or under).

Premise: You won’t know the course route or exact distance ahead of time (it will be between 3-6KM). When you arrive at the race you will be told the distance and race route, and you have to predict when you’ll finish. There are no watches, timing devices, or distance trackers allowed (the honour system is in effect).

The person who guesses the closest to their estimated time is the winner of a Garmin watch! (The irony is not lost on us!)

It’s not about speed, it’s about knowing your pace!
Cost: $5 cash for GP Run/Walk Club members (bring the eventbrite app to show your membership or a printout of the membership you received when you paid for a membership) or $10 for non-members. Must be paid in CASH please!
