35th MOONLIGHT RUN MARCH 19th, 2022

We are excited to announce the 2022 Moonlight Run will include both in-person and virtual events!

This year's Moonlight Run will include 6 km and 10 km distances that can be done in-person or virtually. After a successful introduction last year, our two challenge distances of 38.44 km and 76.88 km (representing 0.01% of the distance to the Moon (384,400 km) or to the Moon and back (768,800 km)) are back again as virtual options.

Our 35th Anniversary swag options include pull over hoodies (available in adult sizes) and long-sleeved cotton tees (available in youth or adult sizes).

All participants will receive a Moonlight Run Finisher medal!

Entries will be limited to 1500 participants.

10K In-Person Run

The 10K is a RUN ONLY (sorry NO WALKERS) and starts at 8 PM SHARP on 8th Street to the east of CASA. We request that you seed yourself according to your speed at the start line. Due to COVID social distancing all results placings and awards are based on CHIP TIME (everyones time starts when they cross the timing mat).

The course turns west from 8th Street onto 3rd Ave and down Wendys Hill into the river valley. The course does get dark in the river valley so please take that into consideration. The 6 km and 10 km routes will be the same as the route last used in 2019. Please review the map here. Both routes will be heading south along Indian Battle Road at the bottom of the 3rd Avenue hill. The 6K route will be an out-and-back along this road and the 10K will do this section with another out-and-back section past the Helen Schuler Nature Centre before returning up the hill to CASA.

The course CLOSES at 9:30 PM.

We are sorry but there are NO DOGS allowed.

Virtual! This is how it works...

Between 8am Saturday, March 19th and midnight on March 27th 2022 you must run or walk your route and log your time (and distances for the Moon Challenges). The virtual run is based on the honour system of posting genuine times and distances. You can run/walk the course of your choice, or on a treadmill (yay, no hills or -30 temps!) and track it on your phone or watch.
We will email you a link and login information to your dashboard 2 days prior to the start. Before posting your time you will be required to enter the code we email you. Please note you will only be able to post your time ONCE. Should you decide to change your distance or need to correct your age category or gender you can do so in the dashboard area. If you need assistance please contact us here by email or text.

We will be posting complete results here after the completion of the virtual run and both Finisher Certificates and Age Category winner Certificates will be available. Text results will be sent out after the virtual run closes to all participants who signed up for this service.

We request that you do the 10K distance all at once.

While you can run/walk a virtual race anywhere, for those participants living nearby who would like to run the in-person Moonlight Run route a map is available here. We request that you refrain from using the actual course from noon till 10pm race day (March 19th).

To The Moon ... & Back Virtual Challenges

The "Challenge" this year, for those up to it, gives you the opportunity of completing either 38.44K or 76.88K cumulatively over the 9 days. You can post your distance and time each day you run/walk (you don't have to run/walk every day). The dashboard will calculate your total distance and time once you have posted.

School Challenge

Moonlight Run is all about community! Many schools in Lethbridge and the surrounding have students, staff, and families who take part in the Moonlight Run year after year, promoting active lifestyles and fostering healthy relationships in the process. To further encourage active schools, the Moonlight Run School Challenge will award the school with the most participants the "2022 Moonlight Run School Challenge" title and a donation to KidSport Lethbridge & Taber will be made in that school's name. Students and staff can all be counted as part of a school's community so make sure to include your school when you register. A participant in any Moonlight Run event (in-person or virtual) can be counted. Good luck school's and let's stay active!
