poster for Forest Lea Trail RunSPONSORED BY Holiday Inn Express

Back for its 3rd year! The 2024 Forest Lea Trail Run is proud to have Holiday Inn Express Pembroke returning as it's title sponsor!

Located in the heart of the Laurentian Valley, the race consists of trails that are primarily single track with its fair share of roots and rocks, and a little bit of dirt road thrown in here and there! Challenge yourself in one of two distances, 10 km, or 27 km. Both races start with a double track section to spread out the group, and then spend the rest of the time in the tight, technical trails. Maximum of 150 competitors between both races.

For youth 15 years of age and younger that want to try their hand at trail running these is a free 3 km race. Race covers mostly dirt road and double track trails. It is advisable a parent accompanies youth for safety, as trails are fairly technical in some area (no requirement to register). Maximum 25 entrants.

Shirt sizes can only be guaranteed for those who register by August 1st.

All runs utilize the trails at Forest Lea, specifically mimicking the routes used by the Forest Lea Enduro race which has in the past used the same distances for their event. The 27 km race is part of the Outrace series. outrace logo
