Sounds like an interesting route. Nice run!
Our ride yesterday was the same distance and time - ha! Looks like we weren't any faster with bikes.
Yes, sometimes I like to take the train a long way from my house and then run home. I was going to go all the way to Fish Creek and then run back but I felt lazy and got off at Heritage instead. I was told by a friend of mine that this trick is far sexier when you live in Europe and you take the train to the next town, or village across the mountain and run home. I can't exactly argue with that.
You can take a bus to Canmore and then run home. We'll join you for the first 10 km out of Canmore.
In Europe you can go to the next country and run home!
