New Course Intro

Hope you all had a great summer.   

This Saturday Sept 22nd, I will be hosting a training/course intro run at Shades Mills for Conquer the Canuck.  We have made a few small changes to the 2019 course and I think you will like the changes! We will assemble at the picnic shelter (located near boat launch) and start at 9 am sharp. Follow direction signs as you enter the conservation. The run will go from 9 am til 11 am. The flags will get collected around 11:30 am.

I will provide complimentary cold bottled water, Gatorade, bananas, cookies and 10 complimentary draw prizes at 8:50 am. There is a discounted $5.00 rate per runner or walker. Pay at main gate between 8:15 am - 9 am.

The plan is to run the "NEW" full 8.33 km loop and arrive back at the main picnic shelter (the new start/finish). Drop bags are an option at this location.

I will scoot out on my bike and mark the course with white and blue flags on all turns, place a few pie plates for the main sections at 7:30 am and join in the run at 9 am.

The long range forecast for Saturday is calling for 17 and partly cloudy with a low of 6 (keeping my fingers crossed). Great conditions for a group training run! And good training run for those planing on running the Toad the following weekend.

If you plan to attend this Saturday, please RSVP, with an email to myself, at conquerthecanuck@gmail.com,  by noon on Friday Sept 21. This will be a great help to me in planning the aid station supplies and will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to share this  with fellow runners.

Happy trails,
