Within the  heart of Sherwood Park, the 10K route  will bring you through the beautiful golf course neighbourhood of Beauvista, up north to Baseline Road, and wraps around back home through Sherwood Park’s Heritage Mile. There will be water stations along the route, as well as race marshals to answer any questions you may have and guide you along the way.

Our 5K route is the perfect morning run or walk beginning and ending at the park after a walk around the mature area of Sherwood Park’s golf course, Beauvista, and Oak Street.

Whether 5K is easy or a daunting new challenge for you, you will enjoy this walk or run. The route is the sidewalk path, with water stations and friends to cheer you on along the way. Strollers and pets on leashes are all welcome.

Little ones and the young at heart can join in on the fun through our 1K Kids Fun Run.
The route stays within the park, following the trail and looping back towards the start/finish line. Parents and friends can cheer on the kids along the entire course.

Help your kids learn that big or small, they can make a real difference for kids just like them around the world.

We also have a special 50M Toddler Dash across the field at Sherwood Drive Park for our smallest runners – seeing the finish line from the beginning will make it easier to make it to the end!

This route will take place in the main area of the Run for H2O event along the grass where you can watch and cheer on your little one. Help your kids learn that big or small, they can make a real difference for kids just like them around the world.
