Beaudry Fall Classic

Beaudry Fall Classic Results (2020-Virtual, 2019, 2018)

All-Time Cumulative Distances

Update – September 26, 2020

On Friday the Province of Manitoba made the announcement that Winnipeg and surrounding areas will be moving to Code Orange meaning gatherings in public spaces (including Provincial Parks) of larger than 10 are prohibited starting Monday, September 28th and will stay as such for at least the following 4 weeks. As a result of the pending Public Health Order, Parks Manitoba has pulled the permit for Beaudry Fall Classic and with the desire for safety for all participants and volunteers, BFC will not be happening this year as we had planned and hoped for.

More details of what this means for racers was sent via email Saturday morning. Any and all communication or questions between racers and the race director should happen via that email.

Saddened,
Joel Toews – Race Director

Beaudry-final-maybe

The Beaudry Fall Classic is a timed-loop trail race held at Beaudry Provincial Park, just west of Winnipeg, Manitoba, October 2-4, 2020.

Each loop is about 5.1 km and participants can sign up for 6, 12, 24 & 48-hour solo options.

See below for number of loops required for each distance award.

All efforts will be taken to ensure that Provincial Health Orders are being met and that all people on site are maintaining a 2 meter physical distance. Anyone who is feeling sick must stay home and must not participate. People from outside Manitoba must comply with any travel regulations that may be in place at the time of the event.

Beaudry will look quite different this year. Still interested? Below are the details.

Route & Distances

The route will bring you through beautiful forest, much of which is along the Assiniboine River. Each loop will be approximately 5.1 km or 3.16 miles.

  • 50k = 10 Loops
  • 100k = 20 Loops
  • 100 mi = 32 Loops
  • 150 mi = 47 Loops
  • 200 mi = 63 Loops
Timing

We will use the UltraSignup timing app for this event and there will be no live tracking. Results will be posted on UltraSignUp a few days following the event.

After each loop your time will be recorded, please ensure that the timer has noted that you’ve come through the timing area.

Cutting the course or cheating of any kind will not be tolerated.

Aid Stations

Participants of the 24 & 48 hour events can expect ramen noodles, broth and cheese quesadillas for hot food. Volunteers will also be available to use the stove or boil water for you in the “kitchen tent” if need be. Anything beyond that should be brought in on your own, and stored in your own aid station area.

Those participating in the 6 & 12 hour events will have a separate aid station area and can expect standard fare such as chips, candy and water/NUUN. Feel free to bring whatever additional food & drink you may want.

Steps will be taken to ensure that food is handled and provided in a way that is safe and conforms to COVID-19 protocols.

Drop Bags – All participants will have a designated area for their stuff. Amount of space provided will be larger for those in the longer timed events.

Crew – Family, friends and crew are allowed to help you through the aid stations, though we ask the you limit the number of people who support you as they count toward the total number on site for capacity limits. Additionally, we ask that they don’t get in the way of timers or aid station volunteers.

Pacers – Pacers are allowed for the final half of the 24 & 48 hour events. They are, however, to be self-sufficient. Food at the aid stations is for racers only.

Cup Free Race – At the aid stations, there will be beverages available that you may not want to put in your bottles/hydration bladder. If this is the case, please bring your own cup as we are a cup-free race.

Finishing Your Event

If you are done before the time of you event is complete, you must communicate clearly to the timers that you are finished. Please don’t got home without letting someone know. This must be done at the timing station. No one is coming along the trail to pick you up.

Emergencies

On the trail, you are responsible for you! Please make sure you have enough fluids,  proper gear, appropriate first aid, and know how to use it. If you see someone in trouble, please provide help.
