July 13/11 10:37 am - Ontario MTB Marathon Challenge: Round 2
Posted by Editoress on 07/13/11
Free BBQ by a Pool this Weekend!
You can go straight from the top of the podium to a cannon ball! This Sunday the second round of the Ontario MTB Marathon Challenge will finish with a BBQ next to Ontario’s only swim-up podium.
Run entirely on private property this weekend’s course includes: a ride through a barn—twice-- two pump tracks, a moto-cross track, seemingly endless single track, two corn “maze” rides, over 15 bridges and some great views. This is a fun course with very little climbing.
This is also the grand debut of the Apogee Leaders Jerseys for the Women, SS, Men under 40 and Men 40+ in the Marathon Challenge.
The 62k Marathon course features 3 stocked feed/tech zones, and the 25k Half-Marathon features one fully stocked feed/tech zones. Each feed/tech zones has a Topeak Floor Pump, Axiom Tubes for 26” and 29” wheels, SuperB multi tools, Finish Line Dry and Wet lube, Hammer Gel and HEED along with water and bananas. No excuses here!
When you are done, grab a burger (or veggie burger) and some salad and chill by the pool while you wait for the podium and draw prizes, and make up stories of greatness on the trail!
Too far to drive to Kingston the morning of the race? No problem, Free camping the night before (and after if you don’t need to work Monday morning) is included for all riders.
