The Race

The Bad Thing trail race is the ONLY point to point trail race in Ontario. It takes place in Huron County, Ontario along the stunning Maitland Trail.

The 50K option starts in Goderich and ends in Auburn. The 25K portion starts roughly at the half way point of the 50K race course.

Because this a point-to-point  race, runners will be transported from the meeting point in Auburn (the Auburn Memorial Hall), via bus to the starting point in Goderich. Please meet at the Auburn Memorial Hall no later than 6:00am before the start of the race to check-in. The bus will leave Auburn at 6:25am sharp for the 50K option and 8:30am sharp for the 25K option.

The race consists mainly of single track, highly technical trail with a very small amount of road and groomed trail along the way. Participants should be prepared for highly technical, potentially muddy, tough terrain. This race is not for inexperienced trail runners.
