Wow!! Victoria Park is one of the most beautiful day parks in the province.  The trails, waterfalls, Jacob's Ladder, playgrounds, splashpads, pool, tennis courts, etc.  There is just so much to do there.

That's why it is so exciting to be partnering with GoTruro for the Giant Picnic Runganza.

So here are the details:

Full series members just show up and collect your bibs.  

Non-Full Series Members can register at Trackie until Saturday July 15th at 6pm.

Same day registration is available ONLY TILL 10:30AM.  The cost of the event is $5.

Plan to pack a lunch for after the races.  There are plenty of picnic tables.  There is a canteen on site that has hot dogs and hamburgers, plus slushies, freezies, ice cream, etc.  

You can bike ride in the park, so if you want to explore more of the trails, bring your bikes.  The Victoria Park pool opens at 1pm for a public swim.  It only costs $10 for a family and it is an AWESOME pool with so much for the kids to do in it.  

Another must do is a visit to Masstown Market.  It is 10ish minutes west of Truro up the 104 but it is worth the drive. 

We hope to see you at the race.  Bring your footballs, frisbees, and water ballons and plan to make a day of it!!
