Race Hats

We've done the short-sleeve race shirt, the long-sleeve race shirt, the toque and the singlet...so this year we are giving race caps to our first 150 registered runners - sign-up early to avoid disappointment! Registration is also open through the Running Room, which maintains a separate confirmation list. 

Getting There

Start Line is in Couchiching Beach Park on the Terry Fox Circle. Click Here for Google Map. There is plenty of parking in and around the park. You will not be able to drive onto Terry Fox Circle on race morning and the circle will remain closed to traffic until after the awards ceremony. There are plenty of washroom facilities, a lovely new playground and a beach for the kids.

Training Program New

We have a google-docs based training program for the CR-1 that anyone can copy (into any spreadsheet). There are three scheduled runs a week, the rest of the week is for either cross-training, complete rest or easy running. We don't recommend running more than 5-6 times a week - recovery is important too! Click here for the training program
