Iroquoia Trail Test Trail Race
A great opportunity to test your own ability as a trail runner. There are course options for all forms of running types, from beginner to advanced. Options include:
- 7 km– A good test for the novice trail runner – largely flat but with some technical bits
- 18 km – Great challenge for someone too shy for the longer course – hills, technical bits, every bit a test!
- 34 km – Three loops, more hills, some technical, as usual, a test!
- 34 km Relay – 3 x 11.3 km: 3 person teams, 1 loop each
Runners are encouraged to bring their compasses and their sense of adventure.
Proceeds from the registration go towards the on-going operations of Crawford Lake Conservation Area.
Did you know that this race is part of a series of runs? If you like this race you may want to run one of the following Burlington Runners Race Series events.
The courses run along many trails that are rugged and not well-marked. This is why runners are encouraged to pay close attention to their surroundings - there are markers, but you can easily miss one - and bring a compass, just in case. Marshals will be stationed at major turns.
If you veer off course, you're encouraged to return to your last-known marker and resume running from there. If you're going along for awhile and don't see any markers, chances are you've gone way off-course and have, unfortunately, failed the test.
