Why are we capping the race at 400 participants?  If you are going to invest your valuable time by running our race, we are going to make it a great race.  At this venue, we want to make sure the parking works, the trail works, the volunteers are in the right places, the shirts and prizes are perfect, every detail.

Why are we so passionate about hosting this event you ask?

The Rotary Club of Kitchener Grand River host the race for many reasons.  We feel that by putting on a top quality running event, we can raise money to help out our community.  We also want to get our community active and promote healthy living.  By a quality running event we mean:   excellent race logistics, great positive atmosphere with the best volunteers, healthy and fresh post race food, technical t-shirts and a finishing prize for every entrant.  We are runners, our volunteers are runners, whether this is your first race, or you are shooting for a PR, we know what you want to see for your race day.

Thank you for an amazing 2015 running season.  Our May Mudpuppy Chase sold out all 1500 available entries, and our Mudpuppy Trail run will be our best ever!  Together with our community of fantastic runners, sponsors and volunteers we held two amazing events and raised over $70,000 in 2015 for local charities sponsored by the Rotary Club of Kitchener Grand River.  Wow!
