Description

This is a four day camping trip and trail run all rolled into one. In addition traveling 55km and hitting five of the most challenging trails the region has to offer, this event will feature on-trail rough camping. There will be no returning to the comforts of home between runs.

You must register to attend this event.

Treat this adventure as a 4+ trail run.

Restrictions

This event takes place on some very challenging trails with some of the most difficult obstacles. Damage is not only possible, but likely.

You must be self-sufficient. Each member attending the event must bring their own camping equipment, food, clothing and water. Do not assume that others will have items you may need or space to carry your equipment.

Limited Space

Due to limited space at some of the camping locations and the long nature of the event, we will be limiting the number of vehicles in attendance. We are still working out some of the logistics, and a more definitive limit will be announced shortly.

Itinerary

Friday, September 1st

Departure: 8:00pm

We will kick-off the event on Friday with a night run up the Crag Lake Front Door, adding a whole new dimension to this already challenging trail. We will setup camp at Crag Lake where there will be an opportunity for a night swim and some laughs by the camp fire.

Saturday, September 2nd

Departure: 10:30am

After tearing down camp and repacking our vehicles, we continue along the back door of Crag Lake and connect with the Sullivan Lake Trail. Sullivan Lake will be the second camping stop on our tour.

Sunday, September 3rd

Departure 10:30am

From Sullivan Lake, we will head east then south to the top of Evergreen Mountain. Here, there will be some time to play and explore the mountain top for new obstacles and play areas before heading down the narrow pass that leads to the lower shelf and eventually down the south side of the mountain to setup camp at Camp Canada. Please note, there is no lake or water source at this site. There is, however, a short distance down the road, a boat launch at Long Bay Lake.

Monday, September 4th

Departure: 10:30am

On this final day, we will make our way to The Quinn for our final trail of the weekend.

Mandatory Equipment

Each vehicle attending must have appropriate recovery equipment, tools and fuel to sustain their vehicle throughout the trip. In addition, sufficient camping gear, food and water for all of the passengers in their vehicle.

Fuel

While the trip take four days to complete, the total distance traveled is relatively short, therefore refueling should not be necessary. It is highly recommended, however, that you fill your fuel tank in Calabogie to avoid any unexpected fuel shortages.

Food

Each member attending is responsible to provide food for the passengers in their vehicle. Plan to bring foods that do not require refrigeration, as there will be no opportunity to obtain ice or other means of refrigeration along the way.

Guests

As there is limited space, this is a members-only event.
