Dirt, Sweat, and Belonging: Cultivating Movement Through Community
In this presentation, we will explore the “ups and downs” of endurance trail running and discuss the importance of community when it comes to cultivating activity. We’ll discuss the benefits of providing an unconditionally supportive space for all ability levels when promoting and fostering movement. Happy Trails Racing is a community conscious organization working towards building an inclusive trail running community in which individuals of all ability levels are treated equally and their goals are of equal importance. The goal is to provide opportunities for participants to explore beautiful and diverse venues in Ontario and, most importantly, to build a love for outdoor adventure, exploration, and movement.
