EOTB Civic Holiday Trailathon

Before the province loosened restrictions, the club had to make the difficult call to cancel Camp EOTB 2020. Since we could not run camp, but we can run trail runs, we thought we’d setup a jam-packed weekend of trail runs with a bit of a twist to make it a weekend to remember.

We have scheduled 5 trail runs in two days. Don’t worry, you’ll have your Monday holiday to recover. You might finally get a chance to try out those trail lights and rock lights!

Register

To help us plan accordingly, please register for each of the trail runs you plan to attend. The upshot, you’ll be taking care of the trail waiver at the same time!

Reminders

Remember to bring a lunch, plenty of water, boots, cameras and your sense of adventure. It is also recommended that you carry a tow strap and some shackles as basic extraction equipment. Bug spray and sunscreen may also be wise.

As we can never be certain what will transpire on the trail, we cannot guarantee a return time. Even though it is our intent to be off the trail at a reasonable time, come prepared for a long day with extra food and water.

Member Run – Calabogie Line Dusk Run @ The Bogie General Store
Jul 18 @ 7:00 pm

Calabogie Line at Night

Description

The Calabogie Line is a 4.5km stretch of power line that roughly runs parallel to Calabogie road. The entrance is just north of where the power line intersects the road and heads north-north-east from there, exiting onto Ferguson Lake road. The trail has experienced relatively light use, although it is commonly used by dirt bikes.

The start time for this event is not a typo. The event will begin in the evening, allowing members to do a Saturday double-header and put those trail lights to good use.

Meeting Place

The Bogie General Store @ 7:00pm

Departure

We will leave the meeting place no later than 7:30pm.

Requirements

Tow Points are mandatory for this trail. We also recommend you carry a tow strap and some shackles.

For the highway clean-up, we will provide garbage bags and rubber gloves, but recommend you bring your own gloves and wear high visibility clothing (bright colors). Bug spray and sunscreen may also be wise.

Gas
