MRACX offers members a variety of weekly fitness, social, and community initiative events. Our intent is to provide members with a viable alternative to the gym. Our events make working out fun!
MRACX goals focus on: cardio, physical and mental health, self-improvement, and teamwork.
Our events are accessible to everyone.
We offer Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced hikes so everyone has an opportunity to work at their own level and pace. Preparation is key! Proper footwear, clothing, water… Please read all event details before attending.
With MRACX different levels of hikes you can build your speed, stamina and endurance your way. Pace and terrain are altered to adjust the difficulty level. The pace ranges from 4.5 - 6.5 km/hour with distances of 10 - 50 km. Pace, terrain and distance details are shown in each event listing so you can easily choose the right event for you.
If you are a new member we recommend that you start with a shorter, flatter hike. You may be used to walking 10 km, but factoring in a fast pace, hillside ups and downs, and longer distances, can make it much more challenging. Please refer to the colour chart for the level of difficulty.
If you aren't sure how fast you are download a free pace calculator like Under Armour Map My Walk or AllTrails.
