Start time



Confederation Park – Wild Water Works Entrance; 680 Van Wagners Beach Road, Hamilton, Ontario L8E 3L8


There are tons of free parking spaces at Confederation Park and best of all, it is free! Please make sure you reduce your carbon footprint and carpool. If you would like to bike, there are tons of places to lock up your bike and we will keep an eye on it while you run.


Help us keep our races green by bringing your own water bottle. (Compostable cups and on-site recycling and composting will also be provided.)


Sunday, October 7 is the last day for distance changes. Please use this link: RACE FIVE DISTANCE CHANGE.


NOTICE: To help prevent theft, if you are picking up for a friend you must bring a signed photocopy of their i.d. We will also accept an email to you if you can present this upon pick-up. We will release bibs to family members of the same last name. If you pick up your packet before race day, you can by-pass the bib line when you arrive. Please pick your bib up in store if possible as this drastically decreases wait times on race day. Important: You must pick your chip up on race day. Chips are expensive and this reduces loss.
