We started this 2 years ago with a group of ultra runners who wanted an in-person event during Covid-19 pandemic. We had 19 runners. We literally raced out of a backyard, out and back, on grid roads. This past summer we decided to expand and moved to a provincial park with a good network of trails. With no advertising other than word of mouth, and not allowing out of province racers (again due to Covid-19) we had 51 runners. We are now looking to do it all again in 2022 … bigger and better than ever.
