Dauphin, Canada

The Dauphin Rotary Club is getting ready for the Manitoba Snowshoe Run.

The event takes place on Louis Riel Day, and is held to promote physical activity.

Dr. Kevin Steinbachs, race organizer, explains the race route:

“It’s a 5- or 10-kilometer run or walk, whatever level people want to do.  Basically, it’s based in and around the Countryfest site.  It’s kind of a track trail, with signs, so people don’t get lost.  It’s a nice tour through the bush, where people don’t usually get to go.”

The entry fee is $35, and for more information, or to register, visit manitobasnowshoerun.com.
