Here is a description of the event…
TVG is co-hosting an event with OCTRA on Saturday June 16th at Dufferin Forest. The premise of the race is that it’s going to be a three event relay. The events are going to be a 15km mountain bike loop which will then pass off to a runner to complete a 10 km trail run then passing off to an equestrian who will complete a 10km loop. The bike and running course will both be on single track and the equestrian loop will be on the marked equestrian trails. Now the fun part…in competitive equine events the clock doesn’t stop when you cross the finish line. Your horse’s heart rate is monitored and has to recover down to a set B.P.M., then the clock stops. So the biker and runner have to remain with the equestrian and assist in de-tacking and cooling down (forgive me if my terminology is not correct, but you get the idea!) the horse as a team. The “trot out” will then be attempted by either the runner or the biker! Rankings will be based on the teams combined time.
If you wish to form a team of people you know, include a team name and the other names of the people on your team (or partial team) and we will try and fill in the blanks the best we can.
Don’t know others to form a team but want to do one of the three events? No problem. Anyone needing team member(s) will be assigned teammates based on the reception of their entry fee and registration form. The sooner you sign up, the more likely you will get a teammate. If we run out of potential team combinations we will plan on arranging the day such that everyone can still get out and complete their discipline even if they don’t have a complete team. The idea is to just get out there together and enjoy the day and each other’s company. OCTRA has the campout field secured for the weekend so you can camp if you want or just stick around for a campfire for a bit.
Entry fee is $75 per team or $25 per individual and covers everything for the day.
Sound like fun? Let’s all make this a great event.
Hope to see you there, Johnny
