Conquer the Canuck

Many thanks to all runners, volunteers and sponsors for believing in our trail race. Last year's event was a great success and with the increase in participation and support we are thrilled to announce that we will be expanding this year to introduce additional members to our race committee and some positive changes to our event.

I am excited to introduce some extremely familiar faces in our local running community, who share the same passion for trail running as I do. I am confident that they will be a positive influence in helping this event to continue to grow and flourish as a runner’s event and one that you will continue to enjoy participating in!

  • Marjolein (Mya) Wijbenga-Groot – Co-Director
  • Maria Michel – Coordinator
  • Mark Emery – Administrator and Trail Technician

Please join me in welcoming them to our race committee.

We will be bringing back the 12-hour race on a new 6.25 km loop. We have put the staged runs on hold for next year. I have attempted to reach out to all that were deferred to 2023, in events that have changed this year, to ensure that your deferral is applied to the closest event. This is how the events and start times currently look for 2023:

  • 12-hour. 7 am (max field 75)
  • 50 km. 7:30 am (max field 100)
  • 42.195. 7:45 am (max field 50)
  • 25 km. 8:00 am (max field 100)
  • 12.5 km. 8:15 am (max field 75)


We have been granted a new date for our event. The 2023 event is officially booked for May 13, 2023 and our new race committee will continue to try our best to keep it a safe race, for everyone involved
