Stage 45
Parkbeg, SK to Swift Current, SK.

Today was the first time that the West yellow team started out the day. The team started from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. The weather was cloudy and mild, which was a relief from the hot weather from recent days. Surprisingly, our route today, which was a total of approximately 120 km, was hilly for the Prairies. The teams stopped midway at the Town of Morse to eat lunch and rest up. We enjoyed grilled cheese sandwiches accompanied by salad and fruit topped off with ice cream. Read more…

Stage 44
Regina, SK to Parkbeg, SK.

The blue team headed out early today during the crisp morning. They were up bright and early to run to Saskatchewan’s Legislative building to meet with dignitaries and the local community.

Paneet Kaur delivered a Read more…

Like the previous days, the road seemed endless but our target was the capital of the province. Along the way, Read more…

Stage 42
Manitoba Border, MB to Wolseley, SK.

The run started in the small town of Whitewood at a old building that was built in 1884. It also serves as the information center for Whitewood. From there, the teams ran toward Wolseley where we stayed the night at the Banbury House Inn. The scenery was beautiful and the weather - blue skies and sunshine high above - was wonderful to look at but made it more difficult to run as it was much warmer and Read more…

Stage 41
Brandon, MB to Manitoba Border, MB.

The day started with Aman doing the Ardas next to the Bristol Bolingbroke plane outside our motel along the Trans Canada Highway at 6:00am. As this was too early for breakfast the motel we got our breakfast bagged to enjoy along the way although some of us finished it in the lobby while waiting for the day to start. We were glad we started early as it was very much cooler that Read more…
