Evening & Night Trail Runs

We love our Oakville trail system but it can be hard to use during the winter months because of snow and ice but mainly darkness. As part of the rest and recovery of the Holiday Season we will adventure into the trails for some easy runs under the veil of darkness with our headlamps to guide us. 

Thurs Dec 15 2016 and Tues Dec 27 2016 in our LVA Holiday Schedule are when we will be adventuring into the unknown darkness of the trails so make sure you have a HEADLAMP with you on those days!

You can read our post about Choosing a headlamp for running to get a better idea of whats out there. [Choosing a Headlamp for Running - READ MORE...]

 
 

Holiday Lights Run and Cookie Exchange

Holiday Lights Run

On Dec 22 2016, our typical workout will  be replaced with an easy run of approximately 60min where we will visit many of the best Holiday Lights in the Northwest Oakville area around the Glen Abbey Community Centre.

If you know of anyone who has "MUST SEE" holiday lights and decorations we want to include them on our Holiday Lights Run Route. Send the address or location ofyour suggestions to info@lionsvalleyathletics.com by Dec 18 to guarantee they are included. We will do our best to include everyones suggestions but they must be in the area from the QEW to Dundas and Sixteen Mile Creek to Bronte Rd.

Cookie Exchange

The Cookie Exchange will be after the run. The theme for this year's Cookie Exchange is "Rest & Recovery."
