Top 50 Trail Running Blog

Selected by Feed Spot as one of the top 50 Trail Running Blogs.

I am sure it was the high quality writing that did it!
That and the incredible photography of course.
Maybe .....that it is due to the high caliber and elite trail runners who visit the blog on a regular basis to get peak performance tips on trail running and nutrition.
So, I guess we now have to strive to be in the top 10 next.
I will check the mailbox regularly now to see if the medal has arrived and I am sure a hefty cheque as well.

Canada Day Trail Run

In total 30 runners finally showed to do the Canada Day Trail Run
Komoka Trail - Ours to Recover

Wheelers hopes to do 150 'Rookie Hill' repeats may have fallen a bit short of the goal, but some of these crazy bastards gave it their best shot.

Bill was one of the recipients for the best Canada Day running out fit. 
He only won because everyone was a little nervous having children or pets around someone dressed like this.

June 24th Elgin Trail St.Thomas to Port Stanley

We will meet at 184 Sunset Drive, St. Thomas.
Here is a Google Map link to where we will meet up, at the trail entrance.

There is a gas station and restaurant (both I believe are still closed)  but there is parking here as the trail entrance is just behind these buildings.

It is about 20km from White Oaks Mall to give you an estimated drive time.
We will figure out the logistics when we find out how many are running from St. Thomas to Port Stanley and those of us who are going to Port Stanley to do a hike/run an out and back as we did last year.
Please have a change of clothes as we have also done a brunch afterward, plus the erso who is schutteling you back to your car would really appreciate a clean dry body on their genuine Corinthian leather.

Komoka Defiance Trail Run

Taking Back Komoka Trail

I have been asked, ever so politely by some guy with a clip board, to add the Komoka Trail  back to our schedule, as it is the trail that we started this crazy addiction called trail running.
BUT.... I do not want to give in to the money grab of parking to access the trail.
After reviewing the options, I am suggesting we park on the south side of Oxford Street just east of Woodhull Road. (please note map above)
There is a wide shoulder and this is were the 'No Parking' signs end.
It will add 200 meters of road till we access the  trail  at our old starting point of the parking lot that is now closed off to make way for the pay to park lot on Gideon Drive.

Also you will note that the Elgin Trail from St.Thomas to Port Stanley has been added. 
This run was a great success last year but did require some logistics and coordination. 
If the response to this is not good, it may be changed to a local trail instead. So, your feed back is required.
