    London, ON



Road Runners: 9:15 am

Trail Runners: 9:10 am

Due to the recent amount of rainfall part of our course has been flooded

Final decision on courses will be made on location tomorrow morning at race. If the course is still flooded please see the plan below.


Luckily, the 5KM course is still in great condition.

To keep it to a certified race:

  • 5K your route stays the same
  • 10K you will be doing the course 2x’s
  • 15K you will be doing the course 3x’s.

Our timer is aware of the situation and as a bonus for those (2x and 3x) runners he is able to provide you with split times.

To keep it simple we will have a 9:15am start time for everyone and be sending those off in waves according to ability. This will allow for less bottlenecking on the course and an equal opportunity for all.   

Reminder of 5K Map  HERE


The trail course has also flooded (slightly). I know trail runners love adventure but we have decided to stay away from the fast river.

Everything heading East is still ok. We have extended the course (going East) to still run the registered distances. 6KM 1 loop and 12KM two loops.

We will be keeping your start time of 9:10am.

Thanks so much Everyone and we will see you tomorrow morning – Despite the lead up tomorrow is set to be BEAUTIFUL and SUNNY!
