The Foxtail Hundred Rail Trail Race
This is definitely our fastest trail race and probably the fastest 100 mile trail race course in Canada. The course is as close to flat as you will find and the trail is wide, groomed, and accessible. All distances are run on an out-and-back course with plenty of aid stations along the way. The scenery is quite nice and runs alongside conservation land, a golf course, farmers' fields, lush forests, ponds, creeks, and more. For much of the race, there will be kilometre markers on the route.
This is a great opportunity to run a personal best or to try a new distance.
The Dundas Valley Conservation Area is the perfect starting point for an event like this. They offer some great services and the spectators will have plenty to do while they wait for friends/family to finish. Have a look around inside the Trail Centre, which is where the race starts and finishes, or enjoy a snack at the indoor concession stand. Spectators are also welcome to enjoy the shaded trails by going on a hike. There is plenty of room to have a picnic and we will be having a bon fire in the evening so bring your marshmallows! This will be a real community event and will be fun for the entire family!
We will have an area for participants/crew members to set up tents for those that will be on site through the night. There is no additional charge for this.
The Race Registration Fee includes entrance into the Conservation Area for the participants. All crew and spectators will be asked to pay a reasonable entrance fee at the park entrance gate.
