The Winter Running Festival will happen on November 14th. On the same courses as the Falling Leaves, a XC 5k and a trail half marathon.
We specialize in good well-run races, accurately measured and timed. The courses are well marshaled and marked. For testimonials click here.
All of our races are friendly small local races. You can pick up your race kit, or register for the race at the start line, (at least half an hour ahead of the start time). Our sponsors are local businesses, our volunteers are mostly local runners, some of them Canada's best elite runners. We try to keep things moving, so that you can pick up your race kit on race day, run the race, enjoy some race food, review the results all in the space of two to three hours and get on with your day.
We do not offer a free tshirt with each entry in order to keep costs down. We will be offering a series t-shirt at cost . We do have a good collection of age group merchandise prizes
