Stettler’s Walk’n’Roll competition enters home stretch

The final push is on, Stettler!

As the Walk’n’Roll challenge between Rocky Mountain House, Wainwright and Stettler enters its fourth, and final month, Stettler finds itself within striking distance of reclaiming the trophy.

As of Aug. 7, Wainwright still leads the competition between the three communities with 10,136 trips logged. Holding solid in second place, just over 1,500 trips behind Wainwright, is Stettler with 8,613 trips logged. Rocky Mountain House trails with a distant 2,057 trips logged.

“Wainwright would love to keep the trophy, but Stettler could win it back,” said Heartland Beautification chair and Walk’n’Roll organizer Grace Fix.

“Stettler has been making some gains in August, so it is possible to catch Wainwright if all Stettler walkers and bikers out there register their trips at www.stettler.net.”

Walkers and bikers in the community are reminded that trips can be back-dated in the trip entry portal on the Town of Stettler website, walking to and from a destination each count as separate trips and every trip matters in bringing the trophy home.

The fifth annual Walk’n’Roll challenge will roll to a conclusion on Aug. 31.
