Join us on June 26th at the Ville Cooperative (241 Canada St., Fredericton) for a 5K run along the Nashwaak River trail. Registration is ongoing until June 24 through the Running Room’s online portal. Your registration fees will be directly supporting the development and delivery of educational programming that re-connects New Brunswick youth with salmon conservation. In your race kit, you’ll receive a beautiful, certified organic cotton tote filled with FBC swag and a ticket to our Free School Concert (July 16) headliner, Meaghan Blanchard.
Even if you’re not a runner, we’ve got plenty of awesome family activities planned for before, during, and after the run. From 9am-2pm we’ll be set up at the Ville Cooperative with snacks and entertainment. You’ll also get the opportunity to learn about ongoing salmon conservation initiatives from the Canadian Rivers Institute, among others.
||Matt Tomlinson, along with special guest Rafaelle Mackay, will be providing the tunes to keep you and your family grooving post-run.
Originally from Ontario, Matt moved to Montreal so long ago it is barely worth mentioning. However he did manage to fake his way into the hearts of strangers with his – often highly impressionistic – take on the French language. His latest album, Un été en hiver, has been heralded as one of the best albums of 2015 by the Canadian Music Blog.
|From 11-11:30am, Jenny Rolls will be leading a yoga practice for runners and children alike.
Jenny Rolls is a certified and registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 300+) who knows the value of a good stretch before and after a run. She’s a mom of two, a wife of a military runner, and digs what’s gonna feel good after your 5km!
|Make sure to stop by the gym at The Ville Cooperative to learn about our bike-powered smoothie station from our expert staff. They’ll teach you about the flywheel generator, the physics behind the power, and they might even get you to power your own smoothie! (If your legs aren’t too rubbery after the run).|
|Once you’ve powered your own smoothie, head outside to check out The Gaia Project’s Mobile Energy Centre. They’ve got an entire trailer full of renewable energy gadgets to help you get your science fix!|
