Safety Precautions

Sunset is 7:30pm. You may need a headlamp!

There are a few road crossings. This is a WET and there is no reason to take any risks. Please be careful.

You may want to run in trail shoes, but no spikes.

Parking/Start Location

Meet at the wading pool just off of Nootka St.


Without volunteers, these events cannot take place. A hearty thanks to all those helping put this event on. If you would like to volunteer/help at upcoming WETs/WJRs or would like to organize a WET please let us know.
