AID STATIONS * CUP-FREE * DROP BAGS *EARLY KIT PICKUP
We will have several aid stations on course as well as one at the Start/Finish line for the 50K runners. Aid Stations will feature water, electrolytes, fruit, sweets and salty snacks.

WE ARE A CUP-FREE EVENT!
What does this mean? You will receive a reusable, silicone flask with your race swag that we strongly encourage you carry with you to use at the aid stations as we will NOT have any plastic (non-reusable) cups. You can refill the provided flask or your own bottle(s) at the aid stations.
For 25K/16K 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 50K runners there will be a designated drop bag/aid station area at the start/finish line which is also the beginning of your second 25K loop. More details to follow.
EARLY KIT PICKUP
Will be available at Cycling Elements on Friday, September 15 from 11am to 6pm. Race day pick up will commence at 6am at the start line at Mono Cliffs.

RESULTS & PHOTOS
We chose the Procyon Wildlife Centre in Beeton because they are an amazing rescue and rehabilitation for wildlife in need. They were awarded the 2021 Rehab Centre of the Year for their incredible efforts and we truly appreciate your support of this fantastic cause!
Our Mission: Procyon Wildlife is dedicated to working with our communities in an effort to help wild animals in need of care. Our goals are to rescue, rehabilitate and safely release these animals, and to promote public appreciation for wildlife preservation.
Procyon Wildlife is provincially licensed by the Ministry of Natural Resources and is located near Beeton, Ontario. Compassionate members of local and surrounding communities bring needy animals that they have found to our facility for care. Each year, Procyon Wildlife looks after hundreds of orphaned and injured wild animals. Animals are cared for by our specially-trained staff of dedicated volunteers. The animals are released into their original natural habitats as soon as they are healthy and able to fend for themselves.
