“After an overwhelming response from the inaugural Met Con Blue Mountain Adventure Race, we’re thrilled to announce that Met Con Blue will be returning to the hills on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012,” said Met Con Blue spokesperson Jen Nichol.
“The most insane 5km mountain adventure race on the planet will return featuring some new additions, from a few new obstacle designs to some new uncharted terrain,” she added. “Participants can choose to run as an individual or as part of a team and can take part in any of the timed races running every half hour beginning at 9am and running through to 2pm, including Met Con Blue’s signature Heroes Race, featuring a chance for participants to run the course alongside Canadian Forces Personnel, in support of the Soldier On Fund.”
Former WWE wrestler and fitness model Trish Stratus also returns to the fold as the guest star of the competition, which first ran June 2.
“Met Con Blue will take you up, across and down the hills of Ontario’s largest mountain resort. Running, walking and crawling through five kilometres of grueling terrain, with 13 hardcore obstacles standing in the way of the finish,” Nichol said.
“Met Con Blue remains a grueling five kilometres with obstacles strategically placed throughout the course which takes place at Ontario’s largest mountain resort.”
