Always gettin' dirty!
July 9th, 2013 3:22 pm

The 2011 Challenger Course race was my first ever multi-sport race and although I wasn't able to finish (due to ripping the derailer off my bike with 25 km left on the bike stage - I came in 9 min past the cut-off on a really terrible single-speed) I was completely hooked! As soon as registration opened for 2012 I signed up to redeem myself. The weather was a bit miserable but I hardly noticed it as the trails required lots of concentration. I absolutely loved this race!! All the officials are very helpful and friendly. I'm disappointed it's not returning to the Torrance Barrens this year but I'm positive a very exciting challenge awaits us at the Haliburton Forest. I could go pre-ride the bike stage but why spoil the surprise?

I was grinning from ear to ear for a week after this race. The weather was miserable and the course was grueling and I loved every minute of it.
My one recommendation to the planning team would be to have an intermediate course. Jumping from one course to the next is a massive change. A 50km course would be great.

I participated in this event in 2012. Considering I had a horrible cold, and it rained the majority of the day...this was by far the most enjoyable course I have done. the biking section was awesome with a nice mix of trail, rock and road. The paddling was smooth going and the trekking section was this best!! The most challenging section being crawling up the rock and being short. I could have used a boost :) If you're going to do an adventure race whether it's your first time or 100th...give Logs, Rock and Steel a try. You won't regret it!!!

2013 will be my fourth time at Logs, Rocks and Steel. I keep coming back because it is challenging and a lot of fun. The 4 hour race is perfect for anyone looking for an event as a 1st timer, and the 8 hour race will push the toughest of competitors. Each year the gang puts a new twist into the mix, so it is always fresh.

Great race. It was my first adventure race and thought the relaxed yet well organized weekend was a perfect mix.great race with great food before and after. Came back the following year and it was just as good. Only missing it this year due to a scheduling conflict with the revised date.

Some people said the mountain bike trail was a bit tricky but it sounds like this resolved with the course.

I raced the Wolf Course last year with a friend that was new to "off-road" multi-sport. It was a great event for both people that have some experience and brand new like my friend. We had a great time, lots of fun with just the right amount of challenge.

Will definitely race this event again.

Although I didn't do this race last year (which I regret) my wife did and I know she had a blast, and is considering stepping it up and doing the championship course solo this year!! Having competed in Bob's other race a few times and then on the sidelines and volunteering for Logs last year I have seen both sides of the coin and can say he truly puts on a great event. His events have an atmosphere of being fun and not intimidating, with the option to step them up and push yourself as hard as you want. I'm not sure if I want to race or volunteer, I know either way I'll have a blast!

I did this raceo last year and this year, it's one of the toughest races around but I enjoy challenges. I fell into a mud pit up to my waist during the mtn bike portion but otherwise it was a fun experience, the paddling is scenic and the trail run with bushwhacking unique.

Steve Jones and I came back to this event again after a disappointing DNF last year (our fault, we got lost on the water)! The Championship course is probably one of the toughest endurance challenges anywhere in Ontario. Bob Miller and his team did an amazing job of marking the course well, providing support on course and giving athletes the opportunity to challenge themselves. The variety of terrain on the mountain bike was incredible, from REALLY hard to scenic, fast single track, cottage roads (paved and unpaved), Canadian Shield (rock), etc. The trail run was scenic, tough and varied including a water crossing. We earned our beer that evening!
