DONTGETLOST WINTER CHALLENGES
Five Adventure Running Challenges - 3 long cold months. You can do it. 50% of proceeds to MapRunF.
ADULTS WINTER CHALLENGE DETAILS
Challenge #1: The Grunt (THE WINTER RALLY)
This is a 6km time trial loop on Chedoke Golf Course. This is a true HARD Adventure Running loop, with extensive climbs, rough trails in places and potential ice.
Clock your time with the route in MapRunF OR via Strava segment:
One final kicker, in order to log a valid time the course MUST be run either in the dark (with a headlamp of course) OR while there is snow on the ground.
Given that there is winter golf running on the eastern side of Chedoke Golf Course if either of those conditions are not met, it won't be possible to run.

Challenge #2: The Vert
Starting from the bottom of Tyandaga Golf Course, make your way to the parking lot in City View Park. There are two checkpoint to visit along the way to add a small navigational/route challenge (and to keep people off the roads!)
Challenge #3: The Route
Time to use your brain a little more. A 2.5km course zigzagging across Mohawk Sports Park, with multiple route options. Which is the fastest? You'll probably have to run this a couple of different times to find out.
Challenge #4: The Agile
One kilometre. Fast open grassy fields of Bayfront Park. 10 checkpoints zig-zagging all over the place that must be done in order. Can you turn on a dime and run in a straight line?
Challenge #5: The Misery
Just a simple out and back along a 2km section of the Lafarge 2000 trail. No navigation to worry about. This one won't be a problem at all, we're just putting it in to be nice.
YOUTH WINTER CHALLENGE DETAILS
Challenge #1: The Scavenger
10 landmarks to discover in whatever order you choose.
Challenge #2: The Fast
Starting from the top of Tyandaga Golf Course, make your way down in any way you want to the lowest point on the course.
Challenge #3: The Stairs
Climb both the Chedoke AND Dundurn stairs on this course.

1.5km loop of Churchill Park. No bells, whistles or hills, just run as fast as you can!

Just like Challenge #1, 10 landmarks to find - this time at Dundas Driving Park
