Purejohn70 Challenge Final Run

Join us for some cardio and cake in celebration of John Sawchuk’s 70th birthday – and the end of his 777 km triathlon challenge! 

Lake-lovers of all ages and abilities are welcome to join John on his final run through the Assiniboine Park trails and forest. We have planned 2 km, 5 km and 10 km options which participants can complete at their own pace. John will be heading out around 10:15 a.m. and aims to complete his 10 km session around 11:30 a.m. Upon his return to the finish line, there will be quick closing remarks, photos and, of course, birthday cake! 

Meet us at Picnic Site #21 in Assiniboine Park (between the Water Wise Garden and Trans Canada Trail). Each route will start and finish in this location. Route maps will be shared soon on the Facebook event page and we will have some hard copies with us. LWF staff will be on-site as of 10 a.m. to fill up your water bottles and answer all of your run and lake-related questions.

If you would like to support John as gets closer to completing this ambitious personal fitness challenge, visit his online CanadaHelps page. Donations will also be accepted on-site during the event. (Remember, for every $70 donation, LWF is sending John a birthday card!)

You can learn more about the Purejohn70 Challenge here, or by visiting the Purejohn 70 Challenge Facebook page.

Hope to see you on Aug. 21 as we cheer John to the finish line!
