NEW THIS YEAR
Race Swag Made in CANADA!
Support Canadian businesses during the pandemic and feel good about knowing exactly where your swag has come from! Included in your registration is a printed head wrap, a ceramic medal made in Creemore by a local artist (with a detachable dye sublimated lanyard for your keys!), any trail fees (or donations to trail associations) and a FREE FLIGHT of beer from the brewery or cidery associated with the race you choose. We also have NEW optional race swag: scroll down to see hats, dye sublimated tech t-shirts, baseball tees and hoodies!
What's included in your race kit:
*Note: Creemore Springs is giving participants TWO FREE BEER as opposed to a flight.
Medals change colour depending on the race.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Full course details will be available in the spring after the snow has cleared. None of the trail networks we’re privileged to use encourage running on the snow, so we’re not releasing the information until they’re safe to run on. All courses are exclusively on single track, generally mixed use trails. As GPS between devices is a little flaky at the best of times, individual recorded distances may vary.
This is a self-supported endeavour. There are no natural water features or aid stations on the course. You will need to pack any water / support items with you, and take everything back out again – leave only footprints.
We have two official options to record your race time. Use your favourite app on your phone or watch and submit manually via RaceRoster with a screenshot, or use RunKeeper to load the course and track your time. If you prefer we load your results, we’ll accept manual screen captures to our email address! Starting on the first race day, a special leaderboard page will be available on RaceRoster.
To be released May 2021! Fingers crossed we all have a safe winter season. Stay safe, wash your hands, wear a mask!
I like the idea of running and beer, but I don’t want to run on trails. Can I still participate?
Of course! Running is glorious no matter where you do it! We cannot ship beer or flights however, so if you don’t want to visit the brewery or cidery you register with, we will have to arrange shipping your race kit to you for a small mailing fee.
Can I bring my dog on the trails?
For Hoppin’ into Summer, the answer is to be determined. Stay tuned, but do not count on being able to bring your pup.
For all other races, yes! Obey leash by-laws where applicable.
I want to wear my race shirt while I run on the trail. Can I pick up my race kit on the way to the trail?
Absolutely! All registrants packages are delivered directly to the brewery/cidery for pick up any time on or after the race start date until the race end date. If you’re not able to visit the brewery, please let us know and we’ll mail your race kit to your door. Beer will not be delivered along with it – you’ll need to travel to the brewery for that one! Note: there is absolutely no open alcohol permitted on the trails, so if you pick up your race kit and beer, please enjoy responsibly… at home, or back at the brewery/cidery post-run.
