About La Cloche Endurance Runs
The La Cloche 100 mile and 50 mile Endurance Trail Runs will be run on very rugged, remote, and beautiful, almost 98% single-track trail offering almost continuous climbing and descending on a course that is closed. The events are held on the La Cloche Silhouette Hiking Trail in Killarney Provincial Park located in Killarney Ontario, Canada. The event is located approximately 4 hours from Toronto, Ontario.
The 100 mile event is an out and back endurance run that is 101.4 miles in length offering 22,008 feet of climbing and 22,008 of descent for a total elevation change of 44,016 feet.
The 50 mile event is a point to point endurance run that is 50.7 miles in length offering 11,004 feet of climbing and 11,004 of descent for a total elevation change of 22,008 feet.
The La Cloche Endurance Trail Runs are extremely difficult, challenging events that are NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNER RUNNERS. It will test both the mental and physical ability of the runners – aside from road access to the start/finish, the only access to the trail is on foot or by canoe, meaning the runners will truly be tested in as remote an environment that exists for any race, anywhere!
