Joel Toews is a long time trail runner who has been volunteering or organizing trail races in Manitoba for the past decade.
In the Fall of 2017 with a desire to organize a winter ultra and with his love of the Falcon Trails Resort and Falcon Ridge Ski Slopes area, the two came together in the creation of the Frozen Falcon 8-Hour Winter Endurance Run. Following this event, a number of calls from the trail running community came to organize more events, and Oxbow 50, Birds Hill Trail Series and Beaudry Fall Classic were born.
For three seasons, these events were organized under his own name and from the website; joelatoews.com. As they were highly successful and both welcomed and supported by the community, the decision was made to give these races an umbrella under which they would operate, thus the creation of On The Edge Running.
Though 2020 was a different year that held many challenges with the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is the hope moving into 2021 and beyond, that On The Edge Running, under the leadership of Joel Toews, will continue to plan safe, high-quality and well organized trail races in Manitoba.
See you on the trails!
