This is my first 'Mine' over Matter 10km Trail Run race. It rained the night before so it was quite muddy. I was very happy with the course. I really loved the view inside the forest. I think it would be nice if they had some post-race food and drink. I will probably get my boyfriend to join in this one next year. Great sponsors. Great group of volunteers. Very helpful. Watch out for the tri-atheletes they run the same course.
Amazing event. Forgot how fun going puff road was. Beautiful course and such a smooth operation.thus hours on my list again for next year!

Was my first triathlon. Very well organized. Also very challenging but not to the point where it was not enjoyable. I had a blast. Will train harder and be back.
2012 was my 2nd year doing the full off-road triathlon - wish I hadn't crashed out in the first 3.5k of the bike (snapping my wrist and ending my race), because I know it's a great time and I'd have liked to see the change made to the bike course to avoid ski lift construction on Dissention. The swim is very calm and uncrowded, the trails are beautiful, and the race has a great, low-key vibe. Excellent post-race food from Scooters Catering, who are very accommodating to those with food allergies. Would absolutely recommend this race to anyone looking to try something new or just get away from the standard road tri grind!
Great race venue. Very challenging bike course and great run course.
I did the triathlon here, it was awesome. Despite an injury, I managed to crawl to the finisg line. The swim was safe and warm, the mtn bike was excellent with some killer climbs and sections for fast riding, the run (walk) I would rather forget but otherwise overall an excellent late summer option. It's the only event of it's kind in Ontario at the moment.
I took part in the trail run in this event (okay I felt rather wimpy doing this when surrounded by those doing the tris and dus!). Really great course and so much more interesting than a lot of the road races that I normally do.
Whole event was very well organized especially considering there were so many races going on.
Just did my first off-road triathlon at Mine over matter 2011. The swim was warm and clean, I found the bike ride to be fun. Hard core mountain bikers won't find it to be very difficult although it was hard enough for me. Great run as well. I'll be back again next year looking to beat my time.
