Route description
Route description

Runners will be taken on the lakefront paths around Caldecotte Lake. to complete their chosen distances. A mix of hard gravel, some sections of concrete, and a few yards of mud and grass, this is a great trail run for new and experienced runners alike.

Marathon runners will complete the course 7 times, and Half Marathon runners 3 times. Those running in the Anti-Clockwise Marathon will, as expected, run the course in reverse.

There is also a 50k option for Marathon runners who feel like going that extra mile. All you have to do is decide at the end of your Marathon run that you'd like to complete 1 more lap.
