This race is a challenging and serene off-road running experience through the forest with a series of hills and bridged stream crossings. Runners will start at the nature left parking lot and road (required for spacing), and will quickly find themselves immersed in the forest for the rest of the race. We will be providing water, Gatorade, and snacks for runners.

Elachee will be handing out medals and prizes to the top three male and female finishers for each race. The top three male and female finishers from each race will also receive free registration for next year's Trillium Trek!

The top three male and female finishers from each age category (10 and under, 11-14, 15-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+) as well as in the masters (40-50) and grandmaster (50+) categories. You must be present to receive your medal.

Awards will be given out when we have enough finishers in to fill the categories. Medals will be given out to the top three finishers in each male/female category.
