The Moose Ultra Race is the only multi-stage footrace in Canada. The six-day, 300km course follows the rugged Bruce Trail on the Bruce Peninsular from Tobermory to Blue Mountain Resort near Collingwood. As well as being the longest six-day footrace in the world, it is also one of the toughest with terrain to rival the jungle and temperatures to rival the desert.
Competitors can compete in either of two categories. The traditional ‘solo’ category is for competitors wishing to complete the whole course as an individual. For 2009 there will also be a ‘team’ category, for teams of two runners. The team will complete the course as a relay for four of the stages and together for two of the stages.
With stages between 21 and 69 kilometers, race organizers and crew will be there every step of the way. At the end of every stage competitors arrive at a purpose built race village, which will provide accommodation, unlimited water and supplementary meals to help with recovery. This will be the ultimate running adventure for anyone brave enough to line up at the start.
With the event limited to 40 runners, make sure you enter early for this Canadian Running Adventure!
