Ride through the barn at the Ontario Championships
You can go straight from the top of the podium to a cannon ball! The Championship round of the Ontario XCMarathon Challenge will finish with a BBQ next to Ontario’s only swim-up podium.
Run entirely on private property this course includes: a ride through a barn, pump tracks, a moto-cross track, seemingly endless single track, corn “maze” rides, over 15 bridges, rocky single track and some great views. This is a fun course with very little climbing.
Marathon: 2laps, 3 aid stations
Half-Marathon: 1 Laps, 1 aid station.
Aid Station: There is one aid station at the start finish line. For the Half Marathon riders you will pass the aid station once. For the XCMarathon riders you will pass the aid station three times. There will be an area you can leave bottles or other things in the tent. We also have limited room for teams to set up tents for their riders. There will also be water, eLoad, bananas, and some other grabby food at the aid station (some people like pickles… I don’t get it but who am I to judge?). We will also have a multi tool, some chain lube, a floor pump and some tubes. We have given up on having the right tube for you. There are now officially just too many options. If you can stick the tube that is there in your bike then great! get back in the race. You can send a tube to the aid station but we are not taking wheels etc.
Podium when most riders have finished (Grab some burgers or veggie-burgers while you wait!) We will also do draw prizes at the podium. We have some AMAZING draw prizes. Stick around man, it is going to be insane!!!
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 (lots of draw prizes!!), and make up stories of greatness on the trail!
