The North Face Endurance Challenge Day 1
The North Face Endurance Challenge is a series of trail running events that happen in locations across North America. The Ontario event features two days of racing across a variety of distances.
Day One offers a choice of marathon or ultra distance events with a trail marathon, 50k route, or gruelling 50 mile run.
The events take place at Blue Mountain Resort, located 90 miles outside of Toronto and feature the most pronounced elevation gain trail race in all of Ontario... so brace yourself for some hills!

Runners can expect wooded terrain throughout the mountains, as they run from the top of escarpments to the bottom of valleys. The course will keep coming back for more with constant elevation gains and losses in excess of 800 feet. High bluffs and wide valleys provide excellent views of the rolling countryside and will leave runners humbled by both the beauty and the unique terrain that this area has to offer.
Check out the event's official website for full breakdowns of the courses. There's just too much for us to put here.
