On Saturday February 18th 2017
Cyclists who wish to qualify for the Alaska race start in Emerson at 7:00 am and runners start in Ridgeville at 6:00 am. They are expected to arrive at The Forks at 8:30 pm and 5:00 am Sunday respectively! Can you imagine??? The classic race starts in St. Malo as usual at 6:30 and 7:30 am. The public is invited to cheer them on along the route or drop in at one of the checkpoints: Emerson Curling, Ridgeville Hall, St. Malo Arena, St-Pierre-Jolys Sugar Shack, Crystal Springs Colony, Niverville Arena, St. Adolphe Seniors Services (next to the RM Bldg). There are also Co-Actif Events taking place on the weekend in some communities along the way. Crow Wing Trail thanks the many local volunteers who are supporting this big and exciting event in our small rural communities!
Actif Epica recently announced that it has been accepted as an event qualifier for the legendary Iditarod Trail Invitational. This means that cyclists and runners who complete the longer stretches of 200 kms and 162 kms respectively on February 18th on the Crow Wing Trail from Emerson to Winnipeg, will now qualify to enter the Iditarod! This 2017 race in Alaska starts February 26 and is 1 week before the Iditarod Sled Dog Race!
This will make this race on the Crow Wing Trail the first (and only) event in Canada to serve as a qualifier and only one of 7 globally. (Others: Idaho, Wisconsin, Alaska, Minnesota, Finland, Norway)
We are looking for volunteers who would like to support this local event and show a warm welcome to participants from near and far. If you are interested, email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

For those of you who are waiting to hear from us about our first trail maintenance pass, wait no longer! We did get some mowing in at the end of June.

Our members, friends and the public are invited to our Annual Meeting to be held in Niverville on Monday April 25th at 7 pm at the John Henry Meeting Room located at 290 Main Street across from the Slice of Life Restaurant.
This year our guest speaker is Native Plants Solutions. Their topic is the Niverville Lagoon System which is a first-of-its-kind project in Canada, using phytoremediation for onsite lagoon decommissioning. The Crow Wing Trail meanders along this “attraction”, of interest to trail users and many others.
