National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
On September 30th National Truth and Reconcilation Day, join us to honour and remember our little ancestors who never made it home. We also hold space for those who did. This is why we will raise funds for local grassroots movements, to support Indigenous Athletes, and help provide safe spaces for Indigenous Runners.
On September 30th Indigenous Runner is hosting events in Edmonton and Peace River. From first place to final finisher every runner wins something. Athlete registration is handled on our behalf by Race Roster (raceroster.com).
