Step into a story of cultural contact, determination, and survival as we begin the event with a magnificent route through Sainte-Marie among the Hurons.

For all you amazing half marathon runners! We wanted to give you a heads up that we've made some changes to the course for the 2024 event. We hope you're as excited as we are and we can't wait to see you out there giving it your all! Please see race details.

Come out to TROT for tarts this summer, during Midland’s Butter Tart Festival. Beginning and ending at historic Sainte-Marie among the Hurons’ beautiful waterfront in Midland Ontario, the trot offers a flat, easy course with lots of tarts en route, swag, medals and chip timing. Fun for the new and seasoned runner!
