Chill Session 2023

On Race Day

Our wonderful hosting location is Mansfield Outdoor Centre, in Mulmur. Washrooms are located in the back of the main lodge. Parking should occur in rows parallel to the lodge, we will have volunteers helping organize as you arrive.

We’ll be ready for you  starting at 9:00am to pick up your hoodies and bibs. Pick up will be located in the log cabin just north of the main lodge – look for the N89 banner and come inside!

Race briefings will be short and sweet. 10K Race briefing will be at 9:55, the 5K will be at 10:25, and the 1K will be at 11:55.

Course markings are hot pink with arrows and flags, the cut of for the 5K will be marked for runners to come back down the hill.

Both courses are different from the June Great Mansfield run (no Big Chill and Karen’s Climb!).

Aid Stations: There will be a self serve station at the lookout (water only), a peopled aid station at the Inner Loop Junction with electrolytes and snacks.

This is a CUP-FREE event! Please bring your own – leave no trace!

As the weather for this coming weekend is changing daily, we encourage you to dress in layers and have a plan for wet/snow conditions. Road running shoes will likely not cut it in the mud/snow, so consider trail shoes.

Lunch will be served in the cafe area, starting around 11ish and onwards until everyone has completed their race and had a chance to eat! Meat and vegan options were ordered according to your preference when you registered, so please stick to that so everyone gets their first choice.

S’mores ingredients will be available to take outside for roasting over the fires!

Rally Brewing will be out to serve you a beverage with a ticket included in your race kit. Additional samples may be purchased at $2/each, with all twoonies going to the local food banks we’re supporting!

We’ve been working with several local businesses to get some awesome prizes together for you! To win you have to be here, so we won’t be starting the draw everyone is in. All proceeds from these draws go to the Clearview, Shelburne and Orangeville Food Banks (split evenly 3 ways).

Prizes include:

  • 3 x FULL PARKING PASSES for any NVCA area for a year – go, enjoy trails, park for free!
  • 1 x 2 XC SKI PASSES to MOC with rentals included!
  • Rally/Muskoka Brewing is bringing a prize pack!
  • N89: Socks x 2, trucker hat, and a pair of our popular Sloski clay mugs!
  • MB Soap Co handmade soaps and soap dish!
  • And more!

Tickets are $5 for 3, and $20 for 20. We’ll be selling them at registration and right up until draw time at noonish.

Finally, we’ll be also selling tickets for a 50/50 draw with 50% to the winner, and 50% to the Food banks.

In the event of snow (or rain – we could get either!) everything will proceed as planned. We have the ability to use the indoor space at MOC as last year.
