About the 2021 Race Season
2020 presented some challenges to the endurance sports industry. Looking forward to 2021, we believe that it is possible to host safe, fun events that meet the restrictions in place from our health officials and provincial governing bodies. We are working hard to create safe, fun, and challenging events for 2021. We are opening registration for our events as we are satisfied that they can be held safely and with the approval of the necessary agencies. Please check back as this process unfolds.
