Wascally Wabbit

June 8, 2019

Come to Folly Lake, NS for a 27.5k loop that’s done once, twice (55k), or three times (82.5k). This course is a great mix of everything: gravel roads, buffed out ATV trails, some rocky bits, puddle jumping and brook crossings!

Sunofa Gunofa Run

July 11-12, 2020

Five Islands Provincial Park has a very nice 5.8k loop that you’ll do repeatedly. Every hour. On the hour. For up to 28 hours. Yes, this is an elimination race of sorts that will push you mentally and physically, but it’s also the most fun and social race of the year that is guaranteed to sell out long before race day.

Run on trails that will both inspire and challenge you.

Coffee Run

September 14, 2019

The 2019 race has been cancelled as of August 20th, 2019. Stay tuned for future dates.


Thinking about trying your first trail running race or maybe running a faster-than-normal trail running race?

Come check out the Coffee Run at the Bike & Bean Cafe!

The course is roughly 6k long, with about 3k of that on rail trail. The other 3k…that’s on ATV/powerline trail…up, over, rip a page out of a book a-la-Barkley, turn around and make your way back to the Bike & Bean for a coffee and muffin!

Beat to Snot

Super sweet singletrack (plus many other excellent trails that barely touch the open ski runs) at Ski Wentworth! Don’t be afraid…everybody walks up most of these hills, not just you!

This is a 9.5k loop that’s done once or twice (19k) and features roughly 675m of vert per loop.

Cape Split

The trail out to Cape Split is known to be one of the most popular day hikes in Nova Scotia and now, it will one of the most popular trail running races around! Take note that due to the limited space for parking, this race is capped at 100 runners.
