Tackle the Toad is an ultra trail running event that takes place in beautiful Nelson, British Columbia. The race will take runners on an epic journey through lush ancient Cedar Hemlock forests and up into the rocky spruce alpine that towers over Kootenay lake. Iconic Nelson is well known for its eclectic diversity of culture, dining and endless year round outdoor activities. Most of all it is well known for its jaw dropping mountain bike trails that have been built and maintained by the Nelson cycling association. The proceeds of this event will be put into the cycling club so that visitors, future generations and locals can enjoy the trails for years to come.
