HER QUEST isn't just a race. It's a quest for HEALTH. It's a quest for GROWTH. It's a quest for COMMUNITY. It's a quest to PUSH YOURSELF FARTHER.

HER QUEST is a women-only virtual race that is a place for women to come together and compete in a friendly atmosphere with other women. Outside of the race itself, a part of the focus is on supporting each other to be active, challenging each-other to go a little farther, and breaking down the obstacles that prevent women from getting into endurance running. There will be three virtual speaker sessions included with the race. The three non-race sessions will be recorded and available when you log in.

Also join our private Facebook group to connect with other runners and for regular updates.

Mom of 2 who’s started to be able to finally take some more time for herself over the last year and has again found her love of running through a fabulous local running community.

 ~ Morgan



Hard working, fun loving, sleep deprived ICU RN and twin mama, Taryn, enjoys running because ..... She gets to be alone, in nature & listen to music with explicit language & adult themes... cuz "y'all gonna make me loose my mind" ain't just a phrase but can actually happen.

 ~ Taryn



I am a new runner! I have been running since the beginning of Spring and my first run outside, I accidentally ran 5km! That's when I realized that perhaps I could become a runner at 44! Since then I have been doing Pilates for Runners with Keri Bowzaylo 5 days a week and doing her Intro to trail running class. I am amazed at the journey and progress and I am gaining confidence to run the 10km Herquest race. This will be my first race ever! I enjoy running with Trail Sisters Edmonton and my husband (my biggest cheer leader!) Trail running is such a great way for me to escape into the beautiful river valley of Edmonton.

Looking forward to sharing with all the ladies here. Since all my races have been cancelled my motivation to train has been a bit low but excited to be participating in this!

 ~ Monica



I am a veteran racer.

 ~ Angie



Love mountains,trails and being among nature. Been running for 1 year. Longest race distance so far is 21k. Wanted to challenge myself

 ~ Sailaja



Running has always been one of my favourite ways to connect with and nurture supportive, fun and honest friendships with other women. The shared pain and suffering, hard work and sweat, stories and laughs... all create strong meaningful relationships. I’m so grateful to be able to do my third 50km, after a herniated disc last year that made me think I might never run again. I’m grateful for every step.

 ~ Sonya



I’m new to the distance running world and am looking forward to pushing my comfort zone both physically and mentally!

First time marathon, running in Fort McMurray !!!

 ~ Carlee



I'm a 38 year old mom of two who got sucked into the world of ultras after attending my first Death Race in 2017. Seeing the incredible atmosphere there inspired me to start running (which I've never done, unless forced). I've not competed on the relay twice and loved it! 2020 has seen my races postponed to next year, so this is a great opportunity to get back at it and lace up my runners.

 ~ Heather



I love running for a mental break from life and the sense of accomplishment, no matter the distance or time. It also is motivation as my kids get bigger, I want to be able to keep up with them, and be healthy and active as long as I can.

Mountains are where I feel at peace! Where my soul is complete.
