2021 Buttertart Trot Race Cancelled

Hello Butter Tart Trotters!

While we had hoped to have better news to share, we have decided to go ahead and not proceed with the 2021 race.

We are just as sad and disappointed as you are but we can't anticipate that by June we will have gathering limits again over 750 people. We are just a family of a few passionate runners that finance and organize this event, and we can not take on the risk .

We did discuss in length about providing a virtual edition but we just feel it would compromise the integrity of the race that we have spent many years achieving . If you had a deferral to 2021, it will be good for 2022.

We wish you all the health, happiness and of course butter tarts in 2021.

Stay safe & eat a butter tart 

Much Love, 
Irene, Doug and Courtney Parker

The yummiest run Race in Ontario!
Saturday June 13, 2020 (cancelled)

1 KM KIDS charity RUN / 5 KM / 10 KM / HALF-MARATHON.

Come out to TROT for tarts this summer, during Midland’s Butter Tart Festival. Beginning and ending at historic Sainte-Marie among the Hurons’ beautiful waterfront in Midland Ontario, the trot offers a flat, easy course with lots of tarts en route, swag, medals and chip timing. Fun for the new and seasoned runner!
