The Island Lake Classic 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk starts and ends in picturesque Island Lake Conservation Area, in the Town of Mono, next door to Orangeville. Groomed trails, boardwalk, and mildly challenging woodland trails guarantee an enjoyable event. The park setting, a free children's fun-run, and post race BBQ mean that you can make this a day out for the entire family.
Please note, admission to the park is free for participants and volunteers. Just tell staff at the gate you are with the run. Also note, some trails are not suitable for jogging strollers or wheel chairs.
(10 and over)
The inaugural running of the 10K Lakeside Loop was in 2015. Work creating a trail which circumnavigates Island Lake was completed in July of 2015. The 10K run follows the 5K route for the first 1.2 kilometres before proceeding around the lake on bridges, boardwalks, and groomed trails.
Two water stations on the route:
1. Water at 4K sponsored by:
2. Water at 6.5K sponsored by:
The 5K route is a well marked loop along the southern shore of Island Lake on well groomed trail, boardwalk, and woodland trails.
The route starts in the park at the pavilion, heads out the park entrance, zips down to the dam and splits from the 10K runners to heads back into the park and the UPPER TRAIL, past the Maple Sugar Shack, down to the beach on wood chip trails, joining the THE VICKI BARRON LAKESIDE TRAIL to head back to the finish.
Very pretty. Lots of views of the lake. Note - some of these trails are not suitable for jogging strollers.
