ETR Rockwall Mountain Run
Join Edmonton Trail Runners on Saturday, August 17, 2019 for their 4th annual Rockwall Trail Run. **EXPERIENCED DISTANCE RUNNERS ONLY**
The Rockwall Trail is a fan favourite, and includes three major passes, several waterfalls, glaciers, alpine lakes and of course the famous Rockwall itself.
This run is challenging and should not be attempted by any runner who has not already been running technical trails with elevation and who can run at least 7 hours self-supported. Our leads will provide a safe and epic adventure for a variety of paces.
This event is FREE! There is a $25 deposit to hold your spot*.
Every runner is asked to bring something to share for the potluck supper in the parking lot.
Carpooling is highly encouraged. Vehicles with three or more passengers will win prizes! A carpool link will be posted in June.
1. Rockwall: 55 kilometres, point to point, and 2800 metres in elevation gain. Time ranges from 9 hours to 12 hours. This is a suitable challenge for anyone who has completed the River Valley Revenge 50-km race. Do not attempt this route if you have never run a marathon or ultra distance. Trail experience a MUST.
2. Tumbling: 38 kilometres point to point, and 1800 metres of elevation gain. You miss the Rockwall on this route but there are enough views and climbs to make this trail an unforgettable experience. This is a suitable challenge for anyone who has completed the River Valley Revenge 25-km race. Do not attempt this distance if you have never run at least 4 hours on trails at one time. Trail experience a MUST.
NOTE: This is active Grizzly territory.

Cancellations will be donated to Edmonton Trail Runners, a free fitness group that hosts weekly runs and other adventures throughout the year (www.edmontontrailrunners.com).
