After inclement weather put its initial date on hold, the sixth annual Dirty Badger trail race has been rescheduled to Saturday, Sept. 14.
All other details for the event, originally slated for Aug. 17, remain the same, with check-in beginning at 9:30 a.m. followed by a 10:30 a.m. start. The race, which includes five- or 10-kilometre route options, is open to anyone 16 years of age and older.
A post-race barbecue at Isaac’s is included for all racers and volunteers, and will also feature live music and prizes courtesy of North Face Outlet at the Niagara Outlet Collection. There will also be free samples of craft beer for participants who are 19-plus, courtesy of Cameron’s Brewing of Oakville.
Registration, at a cost of $25 per runner, is available online at brocku.ca/recreation/dirtybadger.
Organizers are also looking for volunteers to work at water stations and help at the registration table. Anyone interested can contact race founder and Zone Manager Eric Walter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers receive lunch and giveaways and will be entered into a draw for a North Face prize pack.
