The Course

Every kilometer will be marked. Clocks will be located at the start and finish. All participants on the course after 4 hours may be asked to move onto the sidewalk/shoulder and obey normal traffic laws. Race marshals will pull any person running without a bib off the course. We urge paying participants to discourage anyone from participating unofficially.

NO BIB, NO RUN!

Finish Area

After you cross the finish line, proceed to the end of the chute as quickly as possible. Medals, food, massage and medical aid will be available. A Family Reunion area will be located just outside the chute.

Post Race

Runners will be provided with Gatorade, water, bagels, bananas, and oranges in the Food Tent.  A very experienced medical team from the Collingwood G&M Hospital will be on hand to assist any participant in need at the medical tent located at the end of the finish chute.
