    This was a really well run event held on the concrete trail around Wascana Lake. It was by far the most enjoyable fixed-time event that I have ever done. I felt really welcomed by all of the participants, volunteers, and race officials. The trail was located in a park around scenic Wascana lake. There were a lot of geese in the park that weren’t afraid of humans, so runners had to weave around them at times, but they were fun to watch, especially the ones with large numbers of goslings. There was also a totem near the course that I took time to photograph, as well as several bronze statues. There were also fountains in the lake, the Beaux-Arts Saskatchewan Legislative building, and the Wascana Center where people were renting rowing boats to take out on the lake. There was a lot going on which made for nice distractions, but on the other hand, near the end of the day the trail got busy with pedestrian and bike traffic. Also, there was a Run for Women that shared the trail during the middle of the morning with hundreds of participants walking 4 or 5 wide on the path. Fortunately, there was room to run around them, but it seemed strange that they would allow such a large race at the same time as an ultramarathon. Despite this downside, it was a very well-run event that I would do again if I have the chance.
