New This Year

As is our tradition – more changes in store for this year!


7 KM – A good test for the novice trail runner –  largely flat but with some technical bits

18 KM – Great challenge for someone too shy for the longer course – hills, technical bits, every bit a test!

34 KM – Three loops, some hills, some technical, as usual a test!

34 Km Relay – 3 x 11.3km: 3 person teams, 1 loop each


Highlights this year:

  • Due to our success we are forced to cap the entries for each race distance (enter early!)
  • Same great location but changes in routing to facilitate the racing: 34k / 18k counter clockwise
  • Preview run of the course  in the spring  - June 1st, July 6th, August 3rd (7.30 am on site)
  • Finishers medals for everyone who passes the test!
  • Catered food from “Pigout Roasters”
  • All entrants (before August 1st) receive a technical tee shirt
  • Age group awards (provided by Mountain Co-op (MEC))
  • Freezies for all finishers

 Trail Running Notes:

1) Wearing headphones while you run is discouraged for trail running. Since it:
    • Makes it difficult for the runner to hear instructions from marshals and volunteers;
    • Impedes your ability to concentrate on the technical aspects of the course (you might fall!)
    • You may miss a sign and get off course through not concentrating;
    • You miss out on aspects of the flora, fauna and wildlife in the conservation areas.
      (if you insist on wearing headphones, take them off when approaching a marshal or water stop)
2) Using a GPS device may not produce accurate results since the device does not accurately calculate distance when the elevation changes dramatically and if the signal is interrupted with significant tree coverage.
3) Water stops are contingent upon road access, therefore they are at irregular distances on the courses. You are encouraged to bring your own beverage and top it up at the course stops.
4) There are no kilometer markings on the course – it’s a trail race not a road race!
5) New routes this year, you are encouraged to check out the course map prior to your race so you have a general idea of the route to help prevent going off course. We try hard to mark the course sufficiently but sometimes we are unable to keep everyone on course.

Enter early to ensure the correct sizing for your shirt!
