Cabot Trail Relay Race

Date: Sat, May 28 2016 - Sun, May 29 2016

In 1988 the idea of holding a relay race around the Cabot Trail was created, and 6 teams of 17 runners per team tested out the feasibility of the idea. Thus was created one of the largest and most popular running events in eastern Canada. Today, 70 teams from across Canada and the USA compete in an event marked by team spirit and camaraderie. More than 1000 runners travel the Cabot Trail which offers some of the most challenging and spectacular terrain in North America.

This 17-leg, 70-team, 2-day staged relay round the Cabot Trail. Runners must have a minimum pace of 9:30/mile.

Distance: 276 kilometers
Registration Fee: $1,500 per team
