Race Routes Finalized!

Your Logs, Rocks and Steel team were up on site last week to complete some trail maintenance and scope out the routes.
We are excited to report that all routes are now finalized and the trails have dried up nicely. Now before you break out the 'euro-white-skin-suit', you should know that you still will get dirty; that's part of the fun, right!?
We were there after a rainfall and the trails were awesome. Just the right amount of mud!

There were some changes to the courses so maps have been updated on the Race Details page. Click the image below to see the updates. You will get maps at registration so no need to print anything.

What are others saying about the race?

Below is some of the feedback we received from last year's event. We plan on raising the bar this year!

“Just wanted to give congrats on a great and well run race. We really enjoyed it. It was our first adventure race and we will be doing more including next years race. Maybe the Championship course. We were very impressed with the organization of the whole thing, everything went very smooth. The food and variety after the race as great and the prizes were good as well.”

Craig Garland

“Well done guys! Thanks so much for all the hard work and planning that you put in to insuring we all had an amazing experience. Loved the run (what a trail!), the paddle was great (although I suck at it)...the MTB portion was kinda ridiculously hard, but I can tell people I did it! In spite of that part, I hope the there is a Logs, Rocks & Steel 2009!!!!”

Mark Ciana

“Just wanted to let you know how much we (Team Human Factor) enjoyed your multi-sport race this past weekend. A great run leg, a stunning paddle and a bike leg that won't soon be forgotten. Great work and I look forward to your future races. Happy Trails.”

Tom Bjelic

“I have to pass along my complete satisfaction with the Championship race course design. The trail run was the finest that I've ran in Ontario, the paddle was scenic and a true delight and the MTB section well! You nailed it! and us! There were precious few moments where we felt we could relax into a pace. In fact, I have to say that 99.5% of the time we had to earn every inch of the course we completed. Therein I feel satisfied and can justifiably refer your race to fellow Adventurers.”


“What a great time! Thank you so much for all your efforts and enthusiasm and creating a fantastic event. I did the Minden course and really, really enjoyed it. (Championship next year? I hope so!) But back to this year ... that was a good challenge and a lot of fun. We asked for some adventure and you delivered. There was cursing during some of the hills and for sure on the portaging but that just made the finish even sweeter.

It was an awesome event, thanks again for all the hours to make it so successful. I had a great time, and very memorable.

Cheers, see you next year.”

Course Conditions and Photos

We had a chance to check out the course conditions in June. Things were still pretty wet and there was lots of dead fall on the trails. Below are some photos of our day and give you a peak at some of the amazing things you will see out there.

We're confident that the trails will dry up significantly by race weekend, however, expect to get very dirty none the less! This is still an adventure race after all; and it will not be without some fun (a.k.a. challenging) sections!
