OUT THERE CROSS-COUNTRY SKI CLUB

Now that southern Manitoba has snow in abundance, many minds are turning to thoughts of Cross-Country Skiing.  At the present moment our Out There Cross Country Ski list has over 100 names — but no current organizer.  We suggest that, for this year, Out There Skiing might be organized on an ad hoc basis (similarly to Out There Hiking). 

If you would like to initiate a skiing afternoon or evening, pick a date, a time, a trail and a meeting place. Then send the information to info@outtherewinnipeg.ca.  We can then post your invitation and information to all those who have signed up for the Cross Country Skiing list. 

Can’t wait to see you Out There!

WINNIPEG FRONTRUNNERS

Winnipeg Frontrunners is a fun, diverse, and social LGBT2SQ+ running group that is open to all levels of running. Membership is free! We meet every Saturday at 9:00 am at The Forks by the elevator next to the ice-cream shop Neon Cone. We break up into two groups with one running less than 5K and another one running 8-10K. Afterwards, we all meet up for coffee at 10:00 am.

Our season begins in the spring (March/April) and ends in the fall (October/November) depending on the weather. We hibernate in the winter, but sometimes we have a pop-up run. Please e-mail us for exact start and end dates of our season and if you plan to join us so that we can look out for you.

We are a member of International Frontrunners

We organize the annual Pride Run which is a fun, non-competitive, inclusive running/walking event during Pride Week. If you have any questions about this great community event, please contact us.

OUT THERE HIKING

View the Fall 2020 Hiking News here

Covid19 Update
As an outdoor activity, Out There Hiking has been able to resume activities.  

Due to the ongoing danger posed by the Covid-19 Pandemic, participation in Out There Hikes is limited to those who are fully vaccinated (2 doses).  Masks must be worn while carpooling with hikers with whom you do not live.

—-

In the summer and fall, Out There Hiking explores trails within a 200 km radius of Winnipeg, mostly in provincial parks such as the Whiteshell. We tackle more challenging trails as the weather cools. We also endeavour to organize at least one walk every year within the Winnipeg city limits and at least one winter walk. Trails and dates are published at the beginning of the hiking season. We do day hikes, meeting at a coffee shop in Winnipeg on a Saturday or Sunday morning, where we arrange car-pooling, then drive to the trail.

Who?

Out There Hiking has been organized primarily for the Manitoba LGBT2SQ+ community.  Out There hikers are welcome to bring along a friend or ally from outside the LGBT2SQ+ community.

How do I join?

Go to the Out There Home page, and click on “Subscribe to Our Mailing List”; then check “Hiking” and “Subscribe”.  You will be added to the list of all those receiving updates about our hikes.

We ask for a $1 administrative fee per hike.  And, as we carpool to get to the trail, so we ask that participants help pay the driver for the cost of the gas and wear on the vehicle.

What to bring

The usual equipment for a hike includes proper shoes, plenty of water, a lunch and snacks, and a bag to carry it all in.  We recommend you also bring other outdoor gear, such as bug repellent, sunscreen and sunhat.

And remember your camera for all the beautiful scenery!

Who picks the trails and leads the hikes?

All hikes are led by volunteers – like you!.  The number of events we organize every year depends upon the number of volunteers who step up to lead a hike.  If you would be interested in leading a hike, just pick a trail, pick a date and then contact Thomas, the current Out There Hiking coordinator, at  tnovak@mymts.net.  We will help you get the word out through our Out There lists, and we will give you any support you need to organize and lead the event.
Happy trails!

Schedule and location

Trails and dates are usually published at the beginning of the hiking season.  We generally hike once or twice per month, from late spring to early October.  We do day hikes, meeting at a coffee shop in Winnipeg on a Saturday or Sunday morning, where we arrange car-pooling, then drive to the chosen trail.

Big thanks to everyone who has led a hike! If you’re interested in leading one, please contact us and we will set it up!
