Turfgrass Institute Trail –University of Guelph


Turf Grass Institute. Although not a real true easy-day running route, as it's quite small, the very hilly grass and gravel loop, of approximately 1100m, is steeped in tradition and is a key workout area every fall for the UofG distance runners.

At the start, the loop features a shorter sharp downhill into a left turn and then a LONG steady ~400m climb to the top to the final left turn, and an ever so slight uphill to the finish of the loop. With the likes of Olympians such as Grant McLaren and Paul Williams doing repeats on these very same hills, some 20 to 30 years ago, the training stimulus today is still the same as it was then.
