Region: Cabot Trail
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.
The annual Cabot Trail Relay Race is a 185 mile/276.33 km, 17 stage relay race through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Beginning in Baddeck, Cape Breton, over steep mountains in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, through many small communities around the famous Cabot Trail, to the gently rolling Margaree Valley.
Distance: 276 kilometers
Registration Fee: $1,500 per team
