What you'll do

Fartlek, which means "speed play" in Swedish, is a revered European method of interval training. This experience is an 8km run, during which participants will be introduced to the basics of completing a Fartlek. This experience will combine the uplifting and positive effects of Fartlek-ing, with the breathtaking scenery of Summerland, BC.

We will begin our Fartlek experience with a light warm-up, and a brief outline of the workout as a whole.

Next, we will begin our 8km journey, while taking breaks along the way and incorporating the Fartlek method throughout. We will travel through secret trails and paths, known only to locals. Parts of the trail that we will follow were originally created by the first pioneers to settle in the Okanagan, as a method of moving goods from Lake Okanagan to the town center.

This will be a fun and positive environment with lots of encouragement!

After our invigorating workout, we will finish at Peach Orchard Park. A light breakfast of locally baked goods, freshly picked Okanagan seasonal fruit and coffee roasted in Summerland will be served. This experience is the perfect start to a day of wine tasting in the Okanagan!

Hi there! I'm Hailey. As a BC native and a resident of Summerland, I have fallen in love with exploring the outdoors. As lifelong runner, the Fartlek method has been instrumental in my training routine. Throughout the experience, I will share with you some of my viticulture and wine-making knowledge that I have gained while working at local wineries for several years. As well, I will share some historical information relating to the Summerland community and the route we will follow.

If you like running through beautiful scenery then this is for you. A great way to start the day with a run through vineyards and fruit orchards led by a very friendly and knowledgeable hostess. Followed up by a delicious breakfast al fresco.
