Hey There Adventure Runners,
Summer! It used to be DGL quiet time, but not any more. We're ramping up to Raid the City in a couple of weeks and hope you might join us!
RAID THE CITY: JULY 29
FEE DEADLINE ALERT
The main purpose of this newsletter is to remind you our newest Raid will be in a little over 2 weeks! Our normal fee deadline is meant to be tonight at midnight, but since some of you won't see this till tomorrow - we'll be extending the deadline for 24 hours until Friday at midnight!
We're pretty jazzed about this race. The format for this race will mirror the Snowshoe Raid: Teams of 2, with three hours to visit as many checkpoints as possible. The race course is close to finalised, with a combination of iconic Hamilton landmarks, tucked away pocket parks, escarpment views, local businesses and a couple gritty locations that remind of the Steel City roots.
We've aimed to make this race as ideal for a first time adventure running race. In addition to the city location being less intimidating, we will be providing a lot of 'help' in the race notes.
For more race specific information and links to sign up, check out the race page on our website. Also check out our Facebook page for additional race perks!
We're ready for our busy time of the year! Our Fall schedule is set and registration for all races will be opening over the coming weeks. We will be hosting our usual complement of races AND due to popularity of our hosting of the Ontario Championships in 2017, we have decided to add a second day to the Peak-2-Peak weekend!
Sept 28: Corn Maze Adventure Run, Hanes Corn Maze, Dundas
Oct 20/21: Peak-2-Peak Adventure Run weekender
Nov 11: Raid the Hammer Adventure Run, Aldershot area
Dec 2: Fall ARK Fest and Icebreaker Adventure Run, Milton
Finally, be on the look out for a website update over the next month. We're all pretty sick of how poor it looks on our mobile devices, so look for a clean update coming soon (you may need to update your bookmarks!)
MILTON TOYOTA SPONSORSHIP
We're happy to announce our partnership will be continuing, with our Program Managers being kitted out in the new 2018 Rav4s! Look for some Rav4Nav4 checkpoints in future Adventure Runs!
