Mad Dog Scramble
What is the Mad Dog Scramble?

Welcome to the Mad Dog Scramble Trail Race hosted by the XSNRG Running Club!
This is a fun trail race mostly through beautiful Sunnybrook Park. There could be some single track flats, some double track, some hills, some stream crossings. It's a wild and whacky forest romp! We DO have ropes to grab for safer stream crossings and some of the tougher hills.
In this race, runners are sent off in waves a minute or two apart, with each wave having progressively faster runners in it. That means that the slowest runners go first and the fastest runners wait for up to 15 minutes. This 'seeding' of running abilities should have everyone finishing about the same time so ultimately it is the first person across the finish line who wins.
In this race, prizes are given to first, second and fourth male and female finishers. Third place gets mentioned, but sorry, no prize. However, we always have a lot of draw prizes, including fantastic ones from Salomon!

There will be a 300m 'Puppy' Scramble for children 6 years of age and under. A free event, it takes a few minutes and is held 10 minutes prior to race start.

Top Secret! No one knows where the race route goes until the race starts. You’ll follow the Mad Dog’s twisted “markings” for about 7K of trail running in Sunnybrook Park.


Fitness and Lifestyle Coach Dione Mason will once again lead our Mad Dog warm-up! Please join her and her team before the race.

Race Start
Runners are divided into “packs” based on speed. Faster runners are held back to give the weekend warrior runners a big head-start! Timed handicaps are based on runners’ most recent 5K or 10k race times.

Prizes
1st, 2nd, 4th, most persistent and dirtiest dogs all win prizes! Plus free food and amazing Salomon draw prizes that anyone can win!

XSNRG Running Club (read it as ‘Excess Energy’) is a running club that specializes in doing group speed workouts once a week. If you want to improve your overall running speed – no matter how fast a runner you are – you have to do speed workouts. And since few people can do them effectively on their own, we offer weekly speed workouts in a group of 20 to 35 runners. You can’t help but be motivated.

Speed workouts vary from week to week but each week include one of intervals, tempo runs or hills, all part of distance runners’ “periodic” training. If you are able to run at least 6 to 8 km, you are ready to increase your endurance, power and speed with XSNRG.

The club welcomes and encourages runners of all levels and abilities to come out and run. We meet at one location in mid Toronto every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm sharp and jog to our workout location. Workouts are organized and led by club coaches and consist of stretches, warm-ups and cool downs before and after every workout.

  1. Meeting Places:
  2. From May to September - we meet at the Sports Pavilion parking lot (lot 7) in Sunnybrook Park (deep in the park up the hill from the stables, 2km from Leslie St.)
  3. From October to April - we meet at Leaside High School (park at the east end of the school in the lot off Parkhurst/Hanna... enter the school from the lot and go to the lower level. Washrooms are available.

XSNRG was established in the late 1980s in Toronto by runners and triathletes and continues to attract both for motivating speed workouts. Past members have included Lisa Bentley (11x Ironman champion), Lori Bowden (5x Ironman champion), both in their early years of running, and Darryl Fox (brother of Terry Fox and National Director of the Terry Fox Research Institute).
