Come on out for this super fun format that we used for the last two years! And don't forget to bring a headlamp if you think you'll be running when darkness falls.
This is how it works: starting at 9am, everyone has 1 hour to complete the 4.5k loop. If you finish loop 1 before 10am, you get to sit, socialize, and rest until the next loop starts at 10am. This continues every hour until only one runner can complete the loop under 1 hour. If you are over 1 hour for a loop, your race is done...but if you're still running on Sunday, the bell lap will be at high noon!!
At the 2015 edition there was roughly 20 people who ran their longest distance ever! This format is a super fun way to log good mileage, with great people, on an awesome trail, without any major pressure to complete the loop on time. We believe that the 2015 race will be the most well attended trail race in NS, so come out and check it out! Interestingly enough, no one has timed out yet in the 2 year history!
If you're going to be running/cheering through the night, why not book a room/bed at the hostel?
The start/finish area is basically at the doorstep of the hostel, so that's pretty darn convenient!! http://www.hihostels.ca/NovaScotia/352/hi-wentworth_about_hi-wentworth.hostel
No refunds, no deferrals, and no furry friends on the course,
or off-leash please and thanks! :)
