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.

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.

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.

Chataya Holy Singer's Artist Statement

I created this design based on the idea that the buffalo, Iihtsipaitapiiyo’pa (our source of life) is a symbol of survival for Plains persistence hunters. It is said that to be able to live on the prairies, you must be able to run at least 26.2 miles (the distance of a modern marathon) in 3 to 5 hours to survive as a prairie hunter. The Blackfoot (Prairie people - Saokitapix) were ultra-marathon runners. This subsistence strategy was adopted from the knowledge of the wolves, which allowed for the hunters to run their prey to exhaustion to be able to get close enough to kill in closer ranges. This was much more effective than ambush hunting, without putting the hunters in serious danger. That is why I put the pictograph of the buffalo in the center of the design

The bottom symbols from left to right, are of the mountains, an iniskim (Buffalo Calling Stone), and buffalo hooves which tell the origin story of the buffalo hunt. This story is one of a series of creation stories, such as the beginnings of the Blackfoot tribes, and the origins of the ceremonial process of the Piskaan (Buffalo Jump), in which running was a crucial part of this communal subsistence strategy; there were at least two buffalo runners who played a key role in this process. And lastly, the origin story of the iniskim, which aided in the success of the buffalo runners’ role in the ceremonial process of the Piskaan. The iniskim is the symbol of abundance for our people. Without the blessing of the iniskim’s power, the Blackfoot people would have suffered from starvation.

The Matapi at the top is the symbol for human being and can also be interpreted as the Niitsitapi symbol, which represents the Blackfoot people. It can also be looked at as the ikkitstakssin (offering) symbolizing the reciprocity of life, and most importantly, balance; the buffalo gave its life for our survival, which is why we honour the buffalo in our ceremonies, songs, dances, and prayers. It is the symbol of life.

Yep they have done ALL 35!!
