Unfortunately due to COVID - 19 the race for 2020 has been cancelled. Registered runners received an email with an option for a 50% refund or deferral, with request to notify directors by April 6th. After this time all runners will automatically be deferred to next year. Thanks so much for your understanding and see you next year!

PICK YOUR POISON
From jars of honey to the technical finisher socks, PYP is one sweet race. A challenging 12.5k loop through the Heights of Horseshoe in Craighurst, Ontario awaits you, but what poison will you pick? One loop will challenge even the experienced trail runner with 4 epic climbs, single track switchbacks, and variant weather conditions on race day. Runners can choose 1, 2, or 4 loops of this course made up of 98% off road terrain in 12.5, 25, or 50k distances. Come for the day or stay in the local area for the weekend and enjoy the many scenic vistas that Simcoe County has to offer.
Registration will open on December 1st, 2019 at 8pm.
We maintain a wait list through Race Roster. As runners withdraw from the race, people on the waitlist will be given an opportunity to register for the race based on the order they registered. Selected participants will be notified via email once selected and have one week to register once the email is sent. The odds of getting into the race depend primarily on the amount of turnover from the registered runners list. Since we don’t have any control over this, your guess is as good as ours. When registering on the waitlist, you will be charged only if you are selected from the waitlist and you accept the invitation to become a registered runner.
Pick your Poison does not offer refunds, but will offer deferrals to the next year.
Runners can transfer distances leading up to the race, and on race day. If transferring to a longer distance, runners must pay the difference in current registration values.There is no refund for runners transferring to shorter distances.
