Medicine Hat Races

Sport & Leisure

Race through the beautiful 155-kilometre trail system and many city parks.

Medicine Hat summers are filled with events that challenge avid and beginner runners, or families who enjoy strolling the trails together.

Conquer the Coulee 

Being one of Medicine Hat’s largest races located in the beautiful, tree-filled Kin Coulee Park, over 400 racers of all levels take part each year. The race is seven-kilometres with 28 obstacles, like rope climbs and monkey bars, to challenge and encourage growth for the next race.

Great Pumpkin Run

A family-friendly race hosted in October, where families and friends dress in costumes to celebrate Halloween. Surrounded by 300-year-old cottonwood trees in Police Point Park, with up-close glimpses of the admired cliffs facing the South Saskatchewan River, the natural beauty and wildlife is a treat.
