Are you ready to break away from the Grid?  

Come be a part of Northern Ontario’s longest, toughest and most remote trail run!  Enjoy breathtaking scenery of the Laurentain Mountains in the peak of the autumn colours. 

There are no roads and no pavement. The course is 100% trail and completely remote. It is you, your footsteps and the quiet of the wilderness. 

The course is a 12.5 km loop with a mix of terrain from various single track sections, old forest logging roads, rolling hills, super steep hills, fast flatter sections, technical rocky sections, creek crossings and a short section through a gravel pit with a sand dune to slide down.  Each additional loop is completed in the opposite direction, which makes it feel like a 25 km loop….plus everyone loves the community feeling of the lapping runners cheering each other on.

Hike option available for the 12.5 km and 25 km.
