The Forest Lea MTB Enduro & Trail Run - Coming this Sunday!
By:     (2011/09/11)


The Forest Lea MTB Enduro & Trail Run is a trail-focused fundraising event to celebrate the Forest Lea trails and raise money for maintenance and development. Funds raised at last year's event purchased new trail signs and a brush saw, which has been put to good use this year by our trail stewards. We pride ourselves on a low key, fun event, and the socializing afterwards is just as important as the riding! For a taste of our event check out this video - Pro videographer Dan Caldwell's take on the 2010 Enduro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVq2nllTU3k

The Event: Sunday am, September 18th, 2011 @ Forest Lea trails (near Pembroke, ON)
Mountain bike 3, 10, 22 or 44km (2 laps of 22km loop). Trail runners have the option of 3, 10 or 22km. The course is 99% singletrack trails with lots of rocks and roots. All routes start with a double track section to spread out the group, and then spend the rest of the time in tight trails. Yes, the beaver dam walk-across will be included again this year (22k), as will a 1.3km section of new trail.

Average bikers can expect to take around 2 hrs for the 22 km course. A winning time will be around 1.5 hrs. Average 10k runners can expect to take around 1.5 hrs.
After you cross the finish line, there’s a hearty BBQ to enjoy and lots of draw prizes to be won!
