Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I park?
Free parking is available on King St (between George & Aylmer) in the parking garage.

What time should I arrive?
At least 1 hour prior to race time. You need to park, pick up your race kit (if you haven't already) get your timing chip, use facilities, listen to pre race instructions, and warm up. Time will fly by.

Will we have access to washrooms prior to race?
There will be port a potties within race area.

Whats a timing chip and where do I put it?
Your 'chip' is an electronic ankle bracelet that will record your time when you cross the timing mat. You put it on your ankle, its easy to put on and take off with the Velcro. You will not even know its on your leg.

Whats in my race kit?
In your 'kit' you will have a tshirt, if you did not miss the August 20th deadline, your bib, some brochures from sponsors and some coupons from some of our local establishments.

What is a bib?
Your bib is your race number. Pins will be provided for you to attach to the front of your shirt. If you signed up early enough, it will be personalized!

Where should I put my belongings when I race?
The parking lot is close enough for you to leave all belongings, especially valuables in your car. Once you are finished your run, its close enough to retrieve anything you may need!

Can I run with my child and then keep going?
Yes! Kids start with adults. The kids run is one complete loop. So adults can certainly run with their child and continue on.

Is there a water station on course?
You bet! Just past where Bethune and Townsend Streets meet.
