Minden Fall Event Weekend 2016 – Including a Fun Race Day!
The address for the training run weekend is 1423/1425 Francis Rd. Minden, ON K0M 2K0. It’s a shared driveway for the 2 houses on top of the hill, on the right, at the end of Francis Rd (the families that own the property). Follow the OFSS signs to the left. Parking is in the first field which is a bit hidden.

The Fun Race will have Canicross, Scooter, Bike and Cart. On Sunday there will be games (finding things on the trail for prizes, and gee haw practice on the field).
If the event is cancelled due to rain, it will take place on the following weekend, October 8th and 9th with the Fun Race on Saturday 8th.
