Rattler Run 2010

Rattler Run 2010

The Medicine Hat College annual Rattler Run is coming up again and is open to all ages of all competitive levels.

The Rattler Run is a fun run, designed to give the Medicine Hat community an opportunity to be outside, get some exercise, fresh air, and have fun. The city, after all, has over 100km of trail systems, so the Rattler Run gives everyone an opportunity to appreciate them.

This year’s run will take place on Saturday, April 24th, between 9:00AM and 10:30AM. Water stops will be placed along the way for runners/walkers, some health snacks for after, and an awards ceremony for the runners.

Like last year, Taylor and I will be volunteering at the water stops, so at the very least you can see how organized and OCD our station will be.

Registration can be done online or through snail mail, but must be completed before April 24th. To register, check the following:
