Join us for a roughly 12km run to Dettah and back, via ice road, across the beautiful Great Slave Lake!
The run will start at the entrance of the ice road on the Yellowknife side, by Rotary Park. It will be a self-timed, self-sufficient fun run (bring your Garmin, hydration, and nutrition). We will start at 9:00am sharp on Saturday March 2, 2019. A limited supply of energy gels will be available to participants. This event is FREE to all (no ).pre-registration required
The Yellowknife Ice Road Run is organized by Ecology North. Funding provided by NWT Recreation and Parks Get Active grant. For more information contact Jennifer Broadbridge at 873-6019 or email@example.com.
Please tread lightly on the land (and water); pack all of your litter and bring it home with you (including any litter you may come across while running).
Did you know there are so many other reasons to #loveNWTwater?
Ecology North supports and facilitates projects that contribute to effective, long-term stewardship of NWT water resources. Our work is largely guided by the vision and goals laid out in the Northern Voices, Northern Water: NWT Water Stewardship Strategy which are designed to ensure that:
- Waters that flow into, within or through the NWT are substantially unaltered in quality, quantity and rates of flow;
- Residents have access to safe, clean and plentiful drinking water at all times;
- Aquatic ecosystems are healthy and diverse;
- Residents can rely on their water to sustain their communities and economies;
- Residents are involved in and knowledgeable about water stewardship;
- Everyone making water stewardship decisions works together to share and communicate information;
Ecology North believes that we can work towards these goals through integrated programming that engages all NWT governments, communities, and residents - including youth, elders and adults - in learning about and sharing their knowledge related to water.
