Trail Fix Racer Update #1
Dear Trail Fix'ers,
We are so very much looking forward to welcoming you to the first-ever Trail Fix Relay! We have a phenomenal day of trail running and team-bonding fun in store for you, and have been patiently counting down the days until it can finally all be unveiled. While relay running events have been growing in popularity in recent years, we are fairly certain that no point-to-point trail course of this length or with this much variety of terrain and trail types, has ever been offered before here in Ontario. We hope that you are as excited as we are!

As we're now just under 6 weeks out from Race Day, we wanted to touch base to provide some general details that you may not have yet gleaned from the website. We will also be issuing a second update towards the end of August with some more specific notes. Should you have any questions at all, please do feel free to contact us anytime at i
The Trail Fix Race Guide summarizes all of the details around Race Day, and will help to give you a better understanding of what to expect. Please do take a moment over the coming weeks to have a read-through. We've gone to great lengths to make this document as clear and concise as possible, to help illustrate the many unique elements of the point-to-point, multi-stage racecourse that you and your teammates will be caravan-ing across.

One of those elements is the system that we'll be putting into place to ensure that all teams are able to complete the course in full (and before nightfall!) This system is referred to as "SimulFixing," and it will allow team members to run certain stages simultaneously. How it works is all outlined in Section 4 of the Guide.

Also included in the Race Guide:
  • The Race Day itinerary and driving directions
  • An overview of our timing system and how it works
  • A team tracking and stage planning tool
  • The official Transition Area (TA) driving guide
  • Answers to FAQs, and lots more!
Many have been asking about what type of swag to expect. The answer - Trail Fix headgear! These super-handy souvenirs may just be the most multi-functional piece of gear you will ever own - be it as a headband, sweat or snot-rag, ice cloth, neck-warmer or face-protector. Try it under a trail cap to make a legionnaires hat for keeping the sun or bugs off your neck. It's brilliant!

Teams will also have Trail Fix pint glasses waiting for them at the finish, which will not only be very well deserved, but also can be filled at the beer tent!
And speaking of the beer tent...

We are very happy to announce that local Caledon brewer Goodlot Farmstead Brewing Co. will be joining us at the finish area and Stage 8-10 transitions at Albion Hills. They'll be on-site for the later afternoon and evening serving up cold brews made from their locally-grown hops, which will pair perfectly with the BBQ meal we'll be serving up from the chalet. Mix in good friends, on-site camping, and a little trail running - it'll be the perfect setting to cap off your day of Trail Fix'ing!

You can check out Goodlot's beer lineup at
Have some friends or family coming along to watch you in action? While we unfortunately cannot allow spectator vehicles in the Transition Areas, we would be more than happy to have them join our Race Day crew!

All volunteers are offered a $25 credit towards future entry fees at any of our events, as well as a sweet-looking Trail Fix tee, and a bagged lunch and/or ticket to the post-race BBQ. The credit can also be offered in the form of a rebate to the team, for referrals of volunteers over the age of 13 and willing to commit to a minimum 5-hour shift.

Know of someone who can help out? Let us know at!
Trail Fix has partnered with the Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club, to support their work maintaining over 100km of Bruce Trail routes within their region. The Bruce is such an immense treasure to all of us who love to hike or run trails, and we should be very grateful for the work done by the dedicated volunteers of its chapter clubs.

You can show your appreciation by making a donation to the to the Bruce Trail Conservancy, or if you would like to supplement our efforts with a contribution to the Caledon Hills Club, please do get in touch at
Once again, if you have any questions at all we are more than happy to answer them. Looking forward to seeing you in September!

Your Trail Fix Team
