Getting fit Jasper is what this Half Marathon was about, approximately 800 runners attended this event. The run took them from town site to Lake Edith and back. Some went for the fun 1 km run, some went for the distance of the half marathon (21km +).
Jasper Aquatic centre has an indoor pool where you can swim indoors. Miette Hot Springs has various pools, but really made for swimming, more like soaking. If you have a hearty soul, you can just about swim on any lakes and rivers in Jasper National Park.
Public swim areas
Swimming is great to keep in shape and also for survival in Jasper. Specially when you have to ford a river to a destination or work in the environment like river guiding or just playing in the water. Lakes and rivers are generally very cold in Jasper because most of them are glacial fed.
