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.
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.
