Welcome to Muskoka Algonquin Runners! We are a running club dedicated to runners of all ages and abilities who live or visit Muskoka. Our club is affiliated with Athletics Ontario. In the near future information will be available regarding membership. Membership fees will be modest and allow us to have liability coverage through Athletics Ontario and also allow runners who are interested, to enter Athletics Ontario competitions. We plan to have a quiet winter as we get established and then pick up steam in the spring. Muskoka is full of runners and we hope to nurture the active running culture further.
