Our Newest Event!
It's been 10 years since we last launched an all-new Storm Racing event, and while this one isn't an adventure race, we're pretty excited about what we've cooked up!
Introducing Trail Fix - a 110km point-to-point trail run relay for teams of four, featuring 10 distinct stages designed to suit all runner types, by blending together Southern Ontario's widest imaginable range of mixed-terrain trail systems.
Over 90% of the race follows trail routes, but the terrain and trail elements vary completely from stage to stage. Be it escarpment ridge running, wide open meadows, countryside rail trail, technical rock-hopping or smooth rolling singletrack, each Trail Fix stage offers an experience that is totally unique from the next.
Teams are entirely free to divvy up the stages as they see fit, with a typical course breakdown ranging between 22 to 32 kilometres per runner. Teams caravan themselves between six transition points to alternate runners, moving their team vehicle across from the start to the finish, where beer, BBQ and lots of post-race chilling and chatter await!
Full details are available at www.trailfix.ca Hope that you'll check it out!
As always, please feel free to contact us at
should you have any questions. Happy training!
Your Storm Racing Team
