2 Hour Training Run - 9 am til 11am 

​On Saturday June 3rd, come and check out the venue for the upcoming Conquer the Canuck Marathon Ultra Trail Weekend. at Shades Mills Conservation. in Cambridge. We will be running the 8.33 km loop that will be used on race day! Runners may choose to run longer than 11am.  Flags and aid station will be removed after 11am. This will be the last opportunity for the course intro run.

We have altered the course for this event slightly from last year and have added a new section we like to call "the jewel", located just past the 4.5 km mark.  We have also adjusted the finish section of the loop so that all of our spectators have a better view of the participants, as they approach the start/finish on each loop.  This will reduce congestion near the beach area. 

The course map is available online under the Course Map page, under the Course Features section and additional copies will be available at the start.
Course will be marked for each km marking and have flags on all turns. Our complimentary aid station will have coke, cold bottled water, bananas and cookies.

Entrance to the Conservation area, is between 8-9 am, and is $5 per adult and $3 per child (pay at gate as you enter). Please indicate you are here for the training run to get this lower rate.


LA Fitness is offering complimentary showesr for those wanting to take a shower and ReJive replenish station is offering a 24 oz smoothie for just $5.40. La Fitness and Rejive are both located at 90 Pinebush Rd in Cambridge, just a 5 minute drive from Shades Mills and close to the 401. 


Please RSVP by 6pm on Friday if you plan on attending the intro/training run.  This is very helpful in the planning for the aid station.
