Champagne And Mars Bars

Trail Runners Will Run For Booze and Chocolate

Our Soiled Sport Trail Series, Season Ending Run

As in past years we seem to have the best turnout for our Champagne and Mars Bar run to celebrate a season of great trail running. 
We had around 44 people out for our run this year, some of them I have never seen before and some I have not seen since last years season end'r. (Tracey and Steve)
Thanks to all for showing up and hope to see you out on Wednesday evening for our night runs at Komoka (headlamps will be needed), and for Saturdays winter runs now exclusively at Medaway Trail till March.
Due to some trail restrictions at Medaway Trail we may have to alter the route some what. But we will review this Saturday to see what makes the best and easiest solution.

Hallucination Aid Station at the Vulture Bait Trail Races

Tempting Runners With Cigars and Beer

What was reported to race officials at this years Vulture Bait Trail Races was almost unbelievable to the ear.
What is believed to be the work of road runners trying to make trail running less appealing may have back fired, as we all know that Vulture Bait Trail Runners have a number of vices, and beer is one of them.
These hooligans set up a water station a 100 meters before our aid station #4 at around the 20 km point, with cups of assorted beers and boxes of cigars.
The Vulture Bait Race organizers are now looking for them, as now that they have started it, they are encouraged to do it again next year as runners will be expecting it.
Thanks to Martin D., Ross W., Alicia D., and Lennard D. for creating a 'buzz' for the Vulture Bait Trail Race.
