Sarah, Queen's Square | May 1, 2019

The 7th Annual Cambridge Mill Race happens on May 19th 2019. This year, the 8km race has evolved from a road race into a trail race, using portions of the The Great Trail (formerly Trans Canada) system.

Trail running is a popular activity for locals, especially since many of the trails run alongside the scenic Grand River.

The Cambridge Mill Race also includes the younger members of the family by hosting the Chipmunk Chase, a 1km race for ages 1-12. The 1km course consists of an out-and-back on the same Great Trail.
