MEC Burlington Race ONE
Challenge yourself and hit the trails!
This trail run will bring you through the beautiful Dundas Valley and will be starting from the Dundas Valley Trail Center. Run a distance between 3.75k, 9.25k & 11.5k.
As the distances get longer the trails become more hilly and technical. Technical terrain includes roots, rocks, mud and/or slippery sections and single track (narrow dirt trails). These courses are a great challenge, but runners are expected to proceed with care and remain within their abilities. The 3.75k distance is a wide gravel path, perfect for novice trail runners!
Parents! There is also a Kids Fun Run this day! If your child is 4-10 years old and you would like to sign them up, click here.

NOTICE: To help prevent theft, if you are picking up for a friend you must bring a signed photocopy of their i.d. We will also accept an email to you if you can present this upon pick-up. We will release bibs to family members of the same last name. If you pick up your packet before race day, you can by-pass the bib line when you arrive. Please pick your bib up in store if possible as this drastically decreases wait times on race day. Important: You must pick your chip up on race day. Chips are expensive and this reduces loss.
