Fun, fairly local small venue race in the USA, less than a 90 minute drive from Ottawa! Great SWAG, chip timing, with cash prizes(!) for top 3 finishers. While other folks are in Boston, why not do a day-trip next year and start the running season off with a 21.1 with Maple Syrup on the course!

Around The Bay with Harold
Start and finish in the FirstOntario Centre, so no waiting around in the cold at the beginning, and a super stadium entry on the finish! The course is a Classic ‘Older Than Boston’, since 1894. At 30K, not your standard distance, and plenty of characters on the route that make this a must-do at least once. Final 10K has rolling hills, and it’s a 2K downhill slope to the finish! Visit original Tim Horton’s in Hamilton as a Bonus!
Summerstown SnowShoe Run
Summerstown Snowshoe Race was a great day to be outside running through the woods on fresh snowfall: great mini road trip to the Cornwall area! Fun unique wooden SnowShoe Finisher medals!
Mad Trapper Snowshoe
Mad Trapper Snowshoe race is a classic series, and we love the night version. Snowshoe by moonlight & your headlamp, navigating through peaceful woods through silky deep snow on somewhat compacted trails. Venues with Mike at The Arc are always fun!
Berlin 5K Run For Joy
