Hamilton's hidden gem. 5K / 10K / 15K / 30K

Update 01/01/2019: The City of Hamilton is hard at work to bring us a beautiful new pier and waterfront area at Pier 8. Unfortunately this means that we won't be able to use the same course in September due to the construction! You might not see maps quite yet for the new route, but not to worry: our expert event & run staff are hard at work to modify this exciting course venue. The race will still be held at Bayfront Park along the waterfront trail.


Free bananas! Post-race massages! Built-in cheer squads! Ready to feel like a road running pro? Sign up for this race to get all these perks for the cost of a fancy burger. 


Attention parents: There is also a Kids 1KM Fun Run at this event! If your child is 4-10 years old, click here to sign them up for a fun chip-timed run.

There are tons parking spaces at Bayfront 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.)

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.
