Run Off-The-Grid

Ontario’s Race with the Smallest Footprint!
Come be a part of Northern Ontario’s toughest and most remote trail run! Enjoy breathtaking scenery of the Laurentian Mountains in the peak of the autumn colours.

There are no roads and no pavement. The course is 100% trail and completely remote. It is you, your footsteps and the quiet of the wilderness. Are you ready to break away from the Grid?

The course is a 12.5 km loop with a mix of terrain from various single track sections, old forest logging roads, rolling hills, super steep hills, fast flatter sections, technical rocky sections, creek crossings and a short section through a gravel pit with a sand dune to slide down. Each additional loop is completed in the opposite direction, which makes it feel like a 25 km loop….plus everyone loves the community feeling of the lapping runners cheering each other on.

New to trail running or long distance running? Not sure you can handle the challenge?

Participants are welcome to hike the 12.5K or 25K course and complete it at your own pace. The focus is on ‘completion’ and not the time that it takes to get it done. All that is required is the right motivation and anyone can do it!
