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.

Sunday April 22rd is the last day for distance changes. Please use this link: RACE ONE DISTANCE CHANGE.

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.
