The BarkHaven Race Directors Report


Andrew ‘Bunny’ 21.1 Vancouver

The BMO Vancouver Marathon weekend markets itself using the phrase ‘Stunning Running’. The scenery is awesome. You have views of the Coastal Mountains for most of the run and a good portion of the second half of the race is in beautiful Stanley Park.

Spring Jock River Race

Originally posted on Wandering Canuks:
I always enjoy getting my gear out for the first paddle of the season – and for the past decade (or longer?) this has often been the Jock River Race, as a fun little paddle. This event draws in alot of casual paddlers, as well as a handful of serious…

Dan’s ATB Hybrid Hammer & Brews

Synopsis: This race is always well organized. Being my 9th time running the 30k, it was nice to go back to in-person racing with this race.

The ATB Hammer Hybrid consist of a virtual 2k, 5k, 10k and 15k and capped with in-person 30k. I did all the virtual distances during my training leading up to the 30k in-person race.

H&J: Love the fine selection of ATB Brews for the post-race recovery.

Around The Bay with Yvonne – 2022

It was cool to be running in the oldest road race in North America.

In spite of the wind and the cold everyone seemed to be in good spirits and grateful to be running again, for many this was their first race in over 2 years.

Note: ‘Run Ottawa’ provides a bus shuttle service for this event to keep transportation simple.

Shamrock Shuffle (8km) 2022 race report

Originally posted on HockeyGeekGirl:
The Shamrock Shuffle is a very popular 8km race in Chicago. This post will give you an idea of what to expect if you choose to run the race. The key takeaway: It’s a fun race, I highly recommend it. There’s something to be said for going out to run big…

Winterman – 2022

Winterman is a true wintry event not for the faint of heart. Shout-out to Adam at Somersault who was able to change the original venue due to ongoing events regarding “freedom” convoy. Beechwood venue provided privately paved path winding around the cemetery that allowed for roughly 5K loops – Soo Owens.

Dion ‘Ignite The Night’ Snowshoe Run

What better way to start 2022 by doing something new (for me): participate in the Dion ‘Ignite The Night’ snowshoe run! This event took place in the evening of Jan-8 at Upper Canada Heritage Village that boasts an impressive Christmas Light display of 1,000,000 colored lights to illuminate the starting area.

Fat Ass 10K Trail-Run

So with Judy signing up for a fall event at the in-person Fat Ass Trail Run in Batawa, I took the opportunity to sign up for a shorter event at the same venue, as I was going to be there anyway when some additional slots became available with loosening C19 restrictions. A month after signingContinue reading “Fat Ass 10K Trail-Run”

9 Run Run. How did this happen?

In an odd reversal of roles, it looks like I signed up for and completed a 10K run, while Judy stayed put near the finishing area to take photos help with the race itself. What’s happening to me?

Bouge Bouge Ottawa 2020

I have to confess that I am kind of an old school runner. I don’t do colour runs, or foam runs or other strange runs.  I like my runs correctly measured ,5K is 5K not 4.8K or 5.1K. I require accurate timing and a well-marked course. I have two sisters and they suggested doing theContinue reading “Bouge Bouge Ottawa 2020”
