Lemming Loop

Lemming Loop – September 29-30, 2017

Friday September 29th 2017 will be the start of the eighth running of the Lemming Loop where you will compete against the clock to see how far you can go in the time limit. The 24 hour event starts Friday afternoon. The 6 & 12 hour races will start Saturday morning.

Race Format:

The Lemming Loop can be entered as either a solo runner or in relay teams of 2, 3 or 4 runners/walkers. If you are interested in participating in a relay event, but need to find a team, e-mail us and we’ll play matchmaker.

Location:

For 2017 we will be back at Beaudry Provincial Park. To get to the park, travel west on Roblin Boulevard, past the Perimeter Highway and through the town of Headingley. The race day HQ is just off the main parking lot.

Race Times:

The three events all have different start times as follows:

  • 24 Hour – 5pm on Friday 29 September
  • 12 Hour – 6am on Saturday 30 September
  • 6 Hour – 9am on Saturday 30 September

NOTE: The 12 hour racers will most likely want a headlamp/flashlight for the the first 60 – 90 minutes. Of course, the 24 hour will have about 12 hours of darkness starting at about 7:30pm.

Register:

Register as a Solo Runner or Register as a Relay Team

See who is registered on the roster page.

You can also take an active part by volunteering.

To pay by cheque, fill in the on-line form and choose the ‘Pay by Cheque’ option.

The Loop:

The trail is 95% double track with a few short sections of single track. One loop is 5.72 km (the exact distance may be adjusted on race day depending on grooming and overall conditions). The trail will be well marked with reflective flags and directional arrows where appropriate.

Kit Pick Up:

Kit pick up and in person registration for the Lemming Loop will be held  at the race site Friday afternoon starting at 3:00pm. Registration and kit pick up for each event will close 30 minutes before the start of that event (ie. 5:30 am for the 12 hour, 8:30 for the 6 hour).

Race Day:

In addition to the typical aid station fare you would find at an ultra (think carby smorg in the forest!) we will have hot food on site to fill you up when your race is over.

Aid Stations:

The main aid station will be at the start/finish area and will be well stocked with water, sports drink and a variety of more solid nutrition options typical of an ultramarathon event.  There will be a variety of hot foods available overnight for the 24 hour race as well; requests are welcome!
