Are You You Ready?

Well Sudbury, we had the chance to see what you're made of this summer as you crushed the Sudbury Camino, and we were impressed.
In fact, we were so impressed with the results that we decided it was due time to put you to the test again and have you take on your next challenge!

The RRA team has been thinking long and hard about the kind of test that would not only get people pushing their limits, but also get Sudbury out to explore more of our extensive trail network.

As a result, we’re pleased to introduce you to the RRA Trail Challenge!

So lace up your hiking boots and get your bikes ready, because we have some great prizes on the line and we want to find out how many of our 30 plus official trails you can conquer in one month.
