Hardwood SingleTrack Classic

MTB Marathon and 1/2 Marathon
Ride or Race

April 27, 2024



Imagine riding or racing on Ontario’s best fast flowy dedicated Mountain Bike trails in a whole new way!

The Hardwood SingleTrack Classic is a new and “secret” 21km loop each year, using the famously popular trails in and around Hardwood Ski and Bike. The Course is approx 95% SingleTrack (thus the name!).
The “secret” is that we completely mix up all the trails, changing direction, order, features, using many trails open for this event only, and anything else to make sure this is a unique riding and racing experience. For those very familiar with the trails, or those new to Hardwood, the 21km loop promises to be something completely different as well as fast, flowy and super FUN.
See 2023 Course Map here
2024 Race Guide with lots of event details

The SingleTrack Classic is personal challenge to ride or race 21km (1 loop, 1/2 marathon), or 42km (2 loops, full marathon) of the course.
