Tri-Conic Challenge - Run the Train

The second part of the Tri-Conic Challenge

All-out foot races begin at the Harbour Quay E&N Railway Train Station, home of Port Alberni's Iconic 1929 No. 7 Baldwin Steam Train.

This event started it all! Known on its own as the No. 7 Challenge, "Sprint" runners will race the train on a 10K journey from our bustling waterfront, through town, and out to the McLean Mill National Historic Site - Canada's only operational Steam Powered Mill. Both the Challenge and Iconic races will also start at the Train Station and new for 2018 they too will end at the National Historic Site. Our Smolt Run will take place at Harbour Quay and it will include a ride on the Train out to the Site where all the fun will be. 

Remember, this is FATHER'S DAY! We're going to include some fantastic things for all Dad's of any age! Like how about a beer/burger just to make things feel a bit better after a long run! Car show? Steam Up event? Music? Bands?
