The runs will start and finish in front of the main doors of Medicine Hat College with three distances to choose from:

  • 3km Fun Run: A flat and scenic loop around the college grounds
  • 5km Race: The 3km course, plus a short trip into and back from Kin Coulee Park via the College Avenue hill
  • 10km Race: The 5km course, plus a journey around Kin Coulee Park and up and down the bike path connecting the community of Kensington to the park

This year’s courses are very similar to the 2019 Rattler Run courses, with an added “victory lap” in the main parking lot just before the finish.
