Why we do this race...

Prairie Summit Shop, The North Face Regina, is proud to support the Greenall Outdoor School program with the proceeds from this event. The Greenall Outdoor students graciously volunteer their time each year to help with trail maintenance, set up, and clean up each year. Thanks to your participation in this event, we are able to raise anywhere from $2000 to $3000 for this great program every year.

 

Food & Drinks

There is no post race meal. We do have an offering of snacks and fruit, grilled cheese sandwiches, milk, water, and Gatorade. Feel free to pack a cooler for a post race tailgate party and take in the afternoon at the park; there are picnic tables around the race area to use but we recommend bringing lawn chairs.

The 5KM Memory Lane Run

For 2017, we are honored and proud to name the 5km race after a former Greenall ODS student, Lane Antosh. Lane’s family has participated in the event each year and we would like to encourage others to run for Lane, or a loved one of your own.

Lane Antosh (1996 – 2013)

Lane Antosh’s life was tragically cut short during the summer of 2013 when he was involved in a car crash on the #1 Highway near his home town of Pilot Butte. Lane was a loving brother and son. He loved playing Minecraft, was involved with Scouts and was a strong advocate for kids with Asperger’s. During his time with the Greenall Outdoor School (ODS), Lane was an inspiration to his classmates and instructors. Lane was the first person to contribute to class discussion and the first to volunteer to help a fellow classmate or instructor. Lane, was compassionate, caring and brave and his contributions to ODS will never be forgotten.
