MEC TRAIL RACE: FORTUNE FELL RACE

Date: Saturday, 01 November, 2014
Time: From 10:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT
Organizer: MEC Ottawa
Price: $15.00
Running on the fells of northern England has lead to this race director’s love of this uniquely British activity. This is the true essence of what is called “trail running” over here in North America.Hill running. Short or long, all fell races have one thing in common…uphill!This race will take you up 100m in the first kilometre on a gravel path, and straight back down 100m in your second on a ski hill. Short, sharp and…painful? Are you up to the challenge? Details, route and registration

Wife-Carrying_v3-final

Wife carrying is based in Finnish history. Legend is that in the 1800’s a man named Herkko Rovo-Ronkainen and his band of thieves would steal sacks of food and women from villages, slinging them over their shoulders and running away. It is thought this is how the sport of Wife Carrying evolved.

Sounds barbaric, but it also sounds like a ridiculously good time! The Grand Prize is your wife’s weight in beer!
