Course Distances

RACES:

Below are descriptions of our 6 different races.  We have also included maps of the loops that comprise each of these races so you can take a look at what you will be facing.   A map for each loop can be found under the menu item called “Courses.”

1. The Magilla (100km solo):

  • You must run in consecutive order loop 1 twice , loop 2 twice, loop 4 once followed by loop 3 twice.
  • Cut off to begin this final leg will be 6:30 PM.
  • Its called the Magilla for a reason! Its big and difficult! It will be a true test of your ultra running ability given the serious elevation gain and loss, the water and river crossings, demanding technical trails and finishing time constraint. Do not underestimate this one!!

2. The Wallace (80km solo):

  • You must run in consecutive order loop 1 twice , loop 2 twice followed by loop 3 twice.
  • Cut off to begin this final leg will be 6:30 PM.
  • Also having a serious amount of elevation gain and loss, this course will test your abilities however you will have more time to complete this “animal.” This is an excellent precursor to your next step being the “Magilla” in our running series. But don’t underestimate it either as it too will take you over and through water courses, river crossings and technical trails that will make you glad to take a shower when done!

3. The Muskeg (50km solo):

  • You must run in consecutive order loop 2 twice followed by loop 3 once.
  • Cut off to begin this final leg will be 6:30 PM.
  • This course is on some of the most technical trails we have. Not only will you get a taste of the varied types of terrain it will challenge your “wet feet” running ability given the beaver dam crossings and river crossings you will encounter. Bring extra socks and shoes!

4. The Half Yak (12km solo):

  • You must run loop 3 once.
  • For aspiring ultra runners we are offering this distance so you can get a taste of our “Running Series.” Its an opportunity to “dip your toes in the water” that will leave you with plenty of energy to stay for our post race festivities!

5. The Muskrat (kids course 3 km ish):

  • This will be a fun loop involving some single track, some climbs, some descents all to the cheers of the adults. Fun run for kids 15 years of age and under!

6. The Twisted Rabbit (80km relay):

  • You must run in consecutive order loop 1 twice , loop 2 twice followed by loop 3 twice.
  • Cut off to begin this final leg will be 6:30 PM.
  • Held on the same course as the “Wallace,” this relay race will give team members the opportunity to see a majority of the course. Whether you have 2 or 6 team members this will be a super fun ride for all whether you have to get wet or not!
