Musquodoboit Trailway

Join us for a super fast super flat race! Old railway bed with great views and tons of fresh air. This is where you can push it for your new personal best. Also one of the best deals in town for a chip timed race, and afterward you can pop over to the local farmers market or brave a dip in the ocean. 

MEC Race Series Club Challenge! Please indicate the name of your running club when picking up your bib for a chance to win our glorious trophy. Can your group unseat the current champions, or will The Mountain View Runners win again?
