EVENT INFO

The Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve is the trail runner’s dream with its challenging terrain that will take you alongside pristine lakes, through a wetland with its tier of beaver dams, up and over some steep inclines and either tiptoeing or splashing through the occasional creek or mud hole.

You will run through technical areas that will require the nimblest of footwork and on trails that allow you to open up to your best speed, plus everything in between. You will marvel at the extraordinary beauty of this privately owned Reserve that we are so privileged to enjoy. It will leave you breathless in more ways than one!

We promise you a well marked course, enthusiastic volunteers and a post-race meal that you will write home about.

We're a Cupless Race

As The Limberlost Challenge grows, so does the amount of garbage it produces. Together we can change this.

We ask that you bring your own drink container. Our friendly aid station volunteers will be pleased to fill it for you. Please also bring your own plates and cutlery for your post race lunch.

Our goal is to host an event that you want to come back to year after year. We feel that being environmentally conscious is a step in the right direction. 

Thank you.

Transfers

Transfers to a shorter distance (ie. 28k to 14k) are possible – no refunds. Transfers up to a longer distance (ie. 14k to 28k) are also possible but will incur a $5 administration fee + current difference in price + HST. Absolutely NO Deferrals or Refunds.
