For the safety of all participants, baby carriers, skateboards, roller blades, animals and unauthorized bicycles & wheeled devices are not permitted in the race.
We will allow participants to push a child in a SINGLE stroller in the 5k event only; there will be a $10 fee for this entry. The $10 fee will cover the child's registration, as all individuals on course must be registered. You will also be provided with an additional bib that must be worn on the back of the individual who is pushing the stroller. This additional bib is for everyone's safety and will read "STROLLER" to indicate to those around you that you are pushing a stroller. This is a recreational category and you will be assigned to the purple corral and asked to start at the back.
We will allow Nordic Poles in all events — please check the box on the registration form indicating you will be using Nordic Poles and ensure you have NOT registered for the "walk" event.
We will allow individuals with a disability to be pushed in their wheeled device. Both participants must be registered in the wheelchair event and have their bib number clearly displayed. We highly recommend that anyone participating in a wheeled device wear a helmet. For more information, please contact Heather Matters at
or 416-944-2765 ext 509.

Time Limit: 1 hour, 20 minutes
After the course closes, support will be limited, and participants assume the role of pedestrians.
All participants will be organized into coloured corrals at the start line. Corral assignment will be based on the predicted finishing time you submitted when registering. On race day, look for the coloured flag that corresponds to the stripe on your bib.
Your predicted finishing time is very important to ensure you start the event beside participants of a similar ability. If you are new to running it is sometimes hard to predict your time, so here are some guidelines to assist you:
Competitive Age Category Runners — Age Category Prizing is awarded based on Chip Time.
You have until September 29 to make any changes to your corral time. After this date, no changes will be made.
In order to ensure that all participants have a safe and enjoyable race, we will be starting the races in waves. Please be in your start corral 10 minutes before the start of the race or you will have to start at the back of the corrals. The corral entrances will close so we can move participants through the start corral in preparation for their wave start time.
*The kit bag will be included in your race kit and is sized appropriately so that all bags checked on race day will fit in the baggage check areas, ensuring efficiency at both check-in and pick-up!
You will receive a sticker in your bib envelope that corresponds to your bib number. You must attach this sticker to your bag in the box marked "PLEASE AFFIX BAGGAGE STICKER HERE" (image below):
