Race the Falls is a 5K and 10K trail race event put on by Race Huron, that takes place at the beautiful
Falls Reserve conservation area, near Goderich, Ontario, Canada. The course is mostly double wide,
groomed trail with some small sections of single track. This is a great event for anyone looking to try a trail race for the first time,
as well as challenging enough for seasoned trail runners to enjoy.
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak we have had to modify this year's Race The Falls event. Unfortunately, we will not be able to proceed with the in-person event at the Falls Reserve as originally planned. However, we are excited to announce that instead, Race Huron is introducing Race The Falls 2020 - Virtual Edition!
This virtual event will take place on the originally planned date of Saturday, May 23rd, 2020. Simply run the distance you had registered for any time on May 23rd from any location, any terrain, road, trail or treadmill (being respectful of social distancing rules of course). Keep track of your time (running watch, phone or stop watch) and upload your results. You do not need to make any changes to your current registration.
Details for uploading your race time, posting your awesome selfies and getting your sweet T-shirt will follow (yes, you will still get an awesome T-shirt!)
We will not be awarding medals this year, so any proceeds as a result of reduced costs will go towards local donations (see below).
The Refund cutoff date for anyone originally signed for the onsite event has expired (April 19th).
Race Huron Donation Update
We are extremely grateful to our local frontline workers during this pandemic and for that reason, we have decided to direct proceeds from this event to the All In For Your Health campaign through our local Alexandra Marine & General Hospital Foundation to help support mental health awareness, which is more important than ever at this time.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you on May 23 for a virtual high five and to help support this great foundation while you get your run on! You can feel proud that your accomplishment will not go unrecognized and that you are helping to support a great cause.
Note: that any donations already made from registrants to the Maitland Woods bridge repair will be sent on to the Maitland Trail Association as planned.
