Where does my registration fee go?
A portion of the proceeds benefit the rainforestofreading.org
Is there a limit to the number of racers?
Yes, due to limited parking and sensitivity of the trails the race will max out at 500 runners. We strongly encourage car-pooling.
Will there be a drop bag location?
Due to the size of the event, parking is at a minimum in the lot so you may be directed to park on 3rd line. This year parking on 3rd line is limited to West side of road only - this will be enforced. We will have shuttle cars up and down 3rd Line. We STRONGLY encourage runners to carpool to the event.
For 25k/12k racers, you will be able to check a small bag at the Start/Finish line. You can pick up a label to write your name and bib # on it at the registration desk to attach to the front of your bag.
For 50km runners there will be a designated drop bag/aid station area at the start/finish line which is also the beginning of your second 25km loop. More details to follow.
What is the difficulty of the terrain?
The 12km* Shortest Course is a technical, mildly challenging run. Mostly single and double track trails through Mono Cliffs Park.
The 25km* Course is as difficult and as much fun as we could make it. If you survive ‘cardiac hill’ at km 2, and ‘68 steps to ruin’, and the ‘roots of all evil’, then the rest is an easy rolling romp towards the finish line.
The 50km* Ultra Course Two loops of 25k combines Mono Cliffs Park with the trails in the Dufferin Forest. Tons of single and double track trails with scenic views and challenging climbs.
* All distances are approximate
Are there time limits?
Yes, for the 50k Ultra Course there is a hard cut-off time of 8 hours - 9:36/km pace maximum. Failure to comply may result in a re-route to the finish.
Can I change my registered distance?
