Sunday, October 20, 2019

 

RACE START:

  • 10:00 am (corner of Wheatley St and Point Road. Please do not block Wheatley Street until you are called to the start line).

 

RACE DAY KIT PICKUP/REGISTRATION:

  • Sunday, October 20, 2019 (Race Day): 8:30-9:45am (Sydenham High School Cafeteria, 2860 Rutledge Rd, Sydenham, ON K0H 2T0)

RACE DISTANCE: 

8km 

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

  • The start/finish line is located at the track in Sydenham. This picturesque 8km runs along the north shore of Sydenham Lake on the Cataraqui Trail. The course is relatively flat and fast with the exception of two small hills on the way out and two on the way back. The surface is a combination of 80% trail and 20% road. The turnaround is on Boyce Island, just past the bridge at Eel Bay.

  • Please note that there are a few homes on Boyce Island, so it is possible that you may meet a vehicle on the bridge, and on the last 200 meters of trail before turnaround. Please be cautious and courteous if you meet a car. Thank you!
