PARCOURS DES COURSES / RACE ROUTES

Veuillez étudier les cartes attentivement ainsi que le profil d'élévation. Les distances sont approximatives, car elles sont mesurées à l'aide d'un GPS.
 
Please study the maps and their elevation profiles! All distances are approximate as they are measured with GPS.

5k / 200m D+

The 5km race begins by climbing the Ole K&P Trail ski run, before branching off right to join a wide double track old logging path leading gradually uphill eventually joining the Manitou Mountain Trail. Next up is the brutally steep “ascent” trail, followed by the stunning views as you catch your breath running the flat(ish) rocky ridge line of the skywalk loop. Skywalk takes you to the summit of Calabogie Peaks, and into a rapid descent back to the resort and the finish line.

13k / 455m D+

The 13km event begins as the 5k, climbing Ole K&P, up to the summit of the mountain via the Manitou Mountain Trail, “ascent” and back into the resort via the descent of Skywalk, at this point spectators will have a great opportunity to see runners pass again before heading out on simply stunning technical trails to the Red Arrow Rock Lookout, along the incredible rocky ridge line of Manitou Mountain Lookout before flying downhill to the finish at the resort.
