My Own Spring Classics
Paris to Ancaster
Storm the Trent
Man I love these races.
Paris to Ancaster - probably the best cycling event in Ontario, a real classic cyclocross/gravel/mud thing. 60km from Paris, Ontario to Ancaster, Ontario. Thousand or more cyclists of all abilities and from all backgrounds - roadies, mountain bike guys, gravel guys, whatever.
Toronto Marathon - what's more fun than running from North York, down Yonge Street, through Rosedale Valley, across the Lakeshore, through St. Lawrence Market... it's just an amazing experience to see Toronto by foot.
Storm the Trent - running around in the woods looking for checkpoints, mountain biking, and paddling! Hits the spot.
The only downside - these three races are all within a 4 week span!
Toughest is the marathon - it's my first in years, but my training has been going well so I'm optimistic. It's just hard to tune up for it with a bike race the weekend before, and then to recover for an Adventure Race 2 weeks after... everything has to go really well for this all to work out for me.
Should be challenging and fun!
