Course description:
The race starts under the grandstand of the Rideau Carleton Raceway, on the track itself. The surface is fine crushed gravel. After the gun racers will run a half lap of the track (anti clockwise) and exit the track through a gate on the back stretch.

The course the runs eastwards through the paddock into an out and back section on a paved road, there is water at the turn around point. After the turn the course runs back westwards, across the paddock behind the racetrack and enters the smaller practice track. Runners complete a full (anti clockwise) loop of the practice track, the surface is fine crushed gravel.
