Beaver Flat 50 – Sask Landing
Muted fall colours dot an expansive brown canvas, this is the setting where physical and mental fortitude will win the day and so many broken spirits will weep under the clouds of an infinite sky. As you bound through a sea of gold and green, you will have some time to think. Some good old thinking time. You will see many things and come across many different faces. Anger, fear, disgust, happiness, sadness, surprise, contempt. Are these the faces of your competition? Maybe, but they also make up the face of your community. What are their stories? How did they get here?
And then take a minute and imagine the songs these hills would sing if they could speak of the people who came before you. Tales of determination, failure, success, struggle, survival. Tales of love and loss. Thinking and running and running and running. Don’t stop thinking and running. How many miles left? The desperate calculus. But don’t forget that your story is more than just sore legs and a sorry mind. And it’s certainly more than just you and I. Together we are making history. Together, we are reaching new heights on the prairies.
DIRECTIONS TO THE RACE

Once you’re in the parking lot, please follow the signs to the Equestrian Campground. Do not park at Goodwin House.
