We were the first female relay team to run the Bruce Trail, uninterrupted, from end to end.

The Nous Bruce Project was an end-to-end relay run of Ontario’s Bruce Trail.  In May 2016 , together as a team of women,  we covered the 894km distance of the Bruce Trail from Tobermory to Queenston, uninterrupted.

It took 5 days, 17 hours, and 56 minutes.

Thank you to everyone who supported our adventure.


Our Stories

Our Bruce Trail relay was a story-telling project. Our blog has plenty of stories about why we attempted the relay, pre-run jitters, and our reflections on setting the first time for an end to end female relay of the Bruce Trail.


We hope to inspire other women to make the most of their lives  - to participate, get outside, and to get active - despite the fears we all face.
