Our very best wishes of good health to all of you during this difficult time. I hope that the summer months allowed you to pursue some fun new adventures and fitness goals, despite the noticeable absence of a racing season.
We know it's been a while since our last newsletter update, and wanted to reach out to let you know where things are at with Storm. It's obviously an understatement to say that it's been an extremely unusual and challenging year for participatory events, but in the spirit of our tagline of 'keep moving forward' we have remained focused on planning for what comes next. If there were to be any silver linings to this past season, we'd see them as:
- It finally brings us to the 20th anniversary edition of Storm, and...
- We have had a LOT of extra time to plan all-new racecourse designs!
Given these two points, we are thrilled to announce that the Haliburton Forest will be the host of the 2021 event, scheduled for September 24-26.
This amazing 100,000+ acre wilderness area near the southern boundary of Algonquin Park has been beckoning us since we first moved Storm to the Haliburton region 3 years ago. With over 100 lakes and over 400km of trail and backroad winding though it, the Forest is without question the perfect venue to celebrate 20 years of Storm.
