If you are tired of hitting the pavement or if you are getting ready for an Obstacle Race, this is a great event to start off your summer season. So, come and run The Fork in the Road 5 Km trail race. Note that this race is not your typical trail run as it has a twist! You will be challenged with forks in the road where you will have to decide which way to go. Choose correctly and you will run a beautiful 5 Km course.  Choose incorrectly and you may be faced with an extra hill or a bonus 500m of single-track trail increasing your total distance to up to 8 Km. Register for 1 of 2 races: The Fork in the Road Challenge or the 2 Km Kids Race.  See below for further details.

Woodnewton? Originally a Christmas tree farm and cross country ski resort in the 70’s and 80’s. Now the farm is being revitalized as a tree farm with a sustainable vision and for limited events so that the public can enjoy this beautiful 200 acre space.  This was the location of the successful MUDNEWTON mudrun. 

With the potential  extension of the State of Emergency to the end of June in Ontario due to COVID-19, we have decided to move the race date to September 12, 2020.  We are committed to our participants safety.  Owing to this, if the race goes off in September, we will have two separate courses (both 5 - 7 km), two separate start and finish lines and will run heats throughout the day so that you can enjoy the trails knowing that your are safely physically distanced.  If we are forced to cancel the rescheduled race, we will move the race to June 26, 2021.  Thanks for your patience and please stay safe.  FITR5K Race Director(*Refunds etc* - please see bottom of page)
