Weather in September is unpredictable but it's best to dress in layers as the morning can be quite chilly. Once you get moving, that can change.
What happens after the race?
When you cross the finish line, you will receive your medal! You'll then be directed to pick up your post-run snack at the Communities in Bloom snack tent. Relax after the run in the Rock Ridge event tent where you can buy a burger and enjoy a refreshment. There will be live music and prizes given for best costume and group costume. Food trucks will also be onsite to purchase food. Families with children can hang out at the Canadian Tire Kidz Zone where there will be activities for them to enjoy.
Could the run be cancelled if there is bad weather?
In the event that weather conditions are considered potentially dangerous to participants and volunteers, the CLFR organizers reserve the right to briefly postpone or cancel the event outright. Cancellation of the event may take place either prior to the start of the event or at any time the event is taking place. A brief postponement and/or outright cancellation of the event may also take place for any other reason or situation wherein the CLFR organizers feel conditions may be potentially unsafe for participants and volunteers. There will be no refunds or deferrals for weather cancellation or cancellation of the event for any reason. Funds not required to cover race expenses will be donated back to the Candle Lake community and mental health intiatives in Saskatchewan.

What do the different colors mean on the race bibs?
Each event/run is color coded. The colour of your bib will indicate what run you taking part in.
RED - 5 km Fox Trot
YELLOW - 10 km Bear Boogie
The color of your bib will coincide with the course flags to follow on the run. The bib will help us help you navigate the course without any difficulty.
Where do I put my bib?
All participants must have a bib visible, otherwise you will be pulled from the course. Your bib must be worn on the front of your body where it can be clearly seen at all times by the course officials. If you wish to start the race wearing warm-up clothing over your bib and plan to remove layers within the first kilometer or so, that's fine. If the weather is such that you plan on wearing those layers for most of the race, then you must wear your bib on the outside where the bib will be clearly visible.
