Event: Buffalo Stampede – SkyRun 20k
Date: Friday the 24th March 2017
Organised by: Buffalo Stampede
The Buffalo Stampede SkyRun is a 20k event which takes runners on a tough 20km challenge taking in the out and back section of the SkyMarathon and Ultra SkyMarathon course from Bright to Clearspot Aid station and return. The course starts in Bright at Howitt Park and makes its way along Morses Creek for 3km of flat running before a steep sharp rise 700m up to the summit of Mystic Hill. The course then descends the challenging Mick’s Track and then pits runner against one of the steeped trails around and runners make their way up to the summit Clearspot. Runners then return the same way they came to a loud finish on the banks of the Ovens River in Bright.

* Mountains 101 – University of Alberta [Coursera]
Mountains 101 is a broad and integrated overview of the mountain world. This 12-lesson course covers an interdisciplinary field of study focusing on the physical, biological, and human dimensions of mountain places in Alberta, Canada, and around the world. Specifically, we’ll study the geological origins of mountains, how they’re built-up and worn-down over time; we’ll learn about their importance for biodiversity and water cycles, globally and locally; we’ll explore their cultural significance to societies around the globe, and how that relationship has evolved over time; and we’ll learn how mountains are used, how they’re protected, and how today they’re experiencing rapid change in a warming climate.
I didn’t even manage to start the Q1-2017 course, lets see if I have any more luck with the Q2 course.

❝Rather than comforting Kasper by saying, “Don’t be scared,” they stoke him with, “Let’s be brave.” The first reminds kids of their fears. The second reminds them to prepare.❞
* Just picked up “Juju” Juliana Buhring’s audiobook *This Road I Ride* to add some background to her ride #IPWR

Event: Sharpy’s Beer Run 2017
Distance: 21km (ish)
Date: Saturday the 18th March 2017
Location: Arthurs Seat
Organised by: Trailology
Starting and ending at the iconic Pig and Whistle Tavern on Arthurs Seat, Trailology proudly presents a 10km and 21km premium trail running event in celebration of the sacred bond between mankind, trails, running, and beer.
Choose a 10k meander through the beautiful state park, perfect for those new to trail running or wanting to simply enjoy the spectacular scenery and soak up the silliness that only this event can provide.
Or… take on the 21km course which not only adds a little distance but also some difficulty in terms of climbing and falling (I mean descending) to the route. Start either run with a carb loaded liquid energy drink (beer) at the start line before heading off to enhance your connection with the land, or skip the pre-run imbibing and wait until you cross the finish line to reward your reward-worthy effort. Or if you don’t drink at all, that’s fine, the Church of Trailology loves you anyway.
Enjoy the trails at your own pace, or challenge yourself for a position on the podium….
