Confederation Park – NW Calgary
The 2017 Sasi Jaunt will be held at Confederation Park in NW Calgary. Beautiful Confederation Park is situated North of 20th Avenue NW and east of 14th Street NW, between the communities of Capitol Hill, Rosemont and Mount Pleasant. See our “Where” page for a map and further details.
Calgary Isolated & Vulnerable Seniors
The Sasi Jaunt is organized by Confederation Park 55+ Activity Centre (CP55AC), which just celebrated it’s 44th year of providing social activities for Calgary Seniors. CP55AC runs an amazing program called “Tea & Conversation” specifically targeted for isolated and vulnerable seniors. Funds from the Jaunt will be used so that CP55AC can continue to provide this much needed program. [Learn more]
We have a fancy race kit with lots’a cool stuff
Each participant will receive a special “Sasi Race Kit” that includes a Sasi t-shirt. Who Says Sasi isn’t unique and stupendously awesome? PLUS .. and this is big. You get Sasi’s undying admiration.
You’ll get wet.
The Sasi Jaunt is a weather friendly event. We like sunny skies and warm temperatures – but, hey – this is Calgary. If it rains or snows (shiver), we’ll forge ahead regardless. Please think positive thoughts so we can have clear skies.
Limited parking is available at the Centre
The Centre has parking for about 60 vehicles and additionally there is street parking available, nearby. (The lower portion of our parking lot may be blocked off to accommodate Jaunt fun functions). Car2Go is also a great alternative that negates the parking issue entirely.
Don’t worry – We have restrooms!
The Centre is equipped with indoor public restrooms and the 5K portion of the Jaunt loop has public restrooms (Courtesy of the City of Calgary) at the 3.3 Km point. (So there is no excuse to use a tree or pee your pants.)
You should plan on arriving by 10:00am for the full Sasi experience
There will be pre-Jaunt events beginning at 10:00am with late registration. Pre-jaunt events, including a guided warmup and stretching begins at 10:30am. Runners/Walkers are turned loose at 11:00am.
“Pledge Raisers” are eligible to win exciting prizes! Does it get any better than that?
So you want a tax receipt, huh?
Well – the answer is YES. We are a registered non-profit and temporary tax receipts are issued by the Running Room and official tax receipts by CP55AC.
