Jackson at Walden: Running for the Community

With a home in Jackson at Walden you’re right next door to Fish Creek Park, making it awfully convenient for you to participate in one of Calgary’s annual charitable runs. To give you some motivation we thought we’d share our favourite run, which is coming up in just a few short weeks. All skill levels are welcome and you can choose to partake in anything from a 1km fun run, to a 5km walk or 10km run!

Calgary Heartbeat Run:

Date: Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

Distance: 10km run, 5km run/walk, or a 1km fun run

The Calgary Heartbeat Run supports the Calgary Health Trust and Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, and it’s a great chance to get to know your neighbours. Based on previous turnouts, you can expect to meet hundreds of new friends in your your community. Taking place at the end of September, enjoy the fall colours on this lovely scenic route along the Bow River. Visit the run website for more information and register today!

Having personally participated in quite a few of these races in the past, I highly recommend getting involved! It is a fun, active way to get to know your fellow neighbours while making a positive impact on your community.

Until next time,

Amanda @ Jackson
