A pancake and sausage breakfast is included for all paid participants and volunteers, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. It is available to spectators for $5.
Many local businesses have donated prizes. All paid participants are entered in the draw for these prizes, but they must be present to win.
Participants who raise $150 or more will have their name entered into a draw for the top prize. The name will be entered once for each $150 raised. Funds must be submitted prior to the event; online funds must be submitted by 5pm on the day before the event. For this prize the winner does not need to be present.
The top prize is a Toronto Getaway. It includes a $300 Via Rail travel voucher, two nights at the Strathcona Hotel in downtown Toronto, and two Toronto City Passes.
A wide variety of bright green t-shirts are available until May 15, 2017, including the following:
For runners and 20k/40k bikers men's and women's tech shirts, with or without sleeves, and men's, women's and youth cotton t-shirts;
For walk/skate/bike participants - men's, women's and youth cotton t-shirts
With many events and catetories the online registration is complex, so please be careful. If you have questions, Sue Serratore (519-339-8705; firstname.lastname@example.org) will help you.
When registering online you cannot go back to change information once you have clicked 'proceed to waiver'. If you try, all your data will be lost. Please check information carefully at each step. If needed, you can make a change after registration either by going into Race Roster or by calling Sue Serratore (519-339-8705; email@example.com).
When registering a team all members must be registered during the same transaction. The first person creates the team then adds members. Be sure to select the same event group for each member of the team (e.g. team of three runners, or team of four in walk/skate/bike). Once the team is complete we recommend you submit the registration before going on to add people to other teams or events, due to the possibility of losing all information by a technical glitch such as accidentally timing out or hitting a key that interrupts the process.
It is a good idea to limit the number of registrations at any one time to about four - in case an error occurs and all are lost.
Race Roster charges a fee of 6.5% of the registration fee plus $1.25 per transaction. This fee is added to your total.
PLEASE NOTE all routes have been affected by construction on Old Lakeshore Road. The maps below reflect the changes and were updated June 13t. Links to google routes were updated June 15, 2017. View all routes by clicking on the links below. All routes begin and end in Mike Weir Park. The routes are flat and scenic, and loop along the lake and through residential streets of Bright’s Grove. The 5 walk, 7k skate and 7k bike end at a different location than where they begin. Water stations along the way are manned by volunteers. There are both signs and volunteer route marshals to direct you along your route.
The 20k and 40k bike routes were very popular last year, and we're having them again. We remind you that they are touring routes NOT A RACE. Cyclists must always give way to runners and follow all traffic rules. Riders who reach the 10k mark at a pace that will not get them back to the park within two hours will be directed to a shortcut back.
Both routes head out east along the lake from Mike Weir Park, along Old Lakeshore Road, north on Dalrymple, then east on Queen. The 20k route turns around on Queen Street at Santa Monica Boulevard and returns along the same route. The 40k route continues along Queen Street, up Bonnie Doon Road and back to Queen Street, and east along Aberarder, south on Oil Heritage, west to Camlachie, south to Michigan, then north on Waterworks and back into the park on Old Lakeshore Road.
40k riders will start just ahead of 20k riders, with self-sorting by estimated pace.
