Four in the morning may seem early, really early in fact.
But a group of Calgarians use that time to adventure before the sunrises.
Chasing Sunrise started on the west coast, but has slowly made a movement across the country and globally. And this Saturday, Calgary can take part in one of its last adventures before the weather turns into full blown winter.
On October 1, Chasing Sunrise’s Calgary chapter will be heading up Sarrail Ridge before the sun comes up to watch the sunrise from the top. The group is meeting at 4 am to catch the sunrise, which is around 7:40 am.
Since it will be dark, hikers are expected to bring necessary gear (such as flashlights or headlamps) for the early morning adventure.
Chasing Sunrise is known for creating free accessible adventures that are within each community’s reach. In Vancouver, the group had nearly 800 people join their Canada Day sunrise hike on Mount Seymour. And although the time may seem obnoxiously early, as Chasing Sunrise states on their event page, “We know it’s going to be an early start, but what’s sacrificing one night of your life for an experience you will never, ever forget.”
And think of all those Instagram photos you can post.
Check out Chasing Sunrise’s Calgary event this weekend, and enjoy that sunrise!
