Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run with my dog? 

You would think so right? But no, unfortunately our insurance won't allow this. Sorry, we know your fur baby is your favourite running partner but they're going to have to sit this one out. You can tell them what you did for there friends when you get home.

Where can I park?

Limit free parking is available at Del Crary. Additional parking is available in the area. 

What time should I arrive?

At least 1 hour prior to race time. You need to park, turn in your donations, pick up your race kit (if you haven't already), get your timing chip, use facilities, listen to pre-race instructions, and warm up. Time will fly by.

Will we have access to washrooms prior to race?

There will be 2 full service city washrooms on site open to the public.One by the Art Gallery and one by the marina..

What’s a timing chip and where do I put it? 

Your 'chip' is an electronic ankle bracelet that will record your time when you cross the timing mat. You put it on your ankle, it’s easy to put on and take off with the Velcro. You will not even know it’s on your leg. Please return your chip after your race!

What’s in my race kit?

In your 'kit' you will have a bib (number), pins, some brochures from sponsors and some coupons from some of our local establishments.

What is a bib? 

Your bib is your race number. Pins will be provided for you to attach to the front of your shirt. If you signed up early enough, it will be personalized!

Where should I put my belongings when I race?

The parking lot is close enough for you to leave all belongings, especially valuables in your car. Once you are finished your run, its close enough to retrieve anything you may need.
Please note: there is no secure place for you to keep your belongings at the race site. Organizers are not responsible for your belongings.

Can I run with my child for the 1k?


Is there a water station on the course?

You bet! About half way through the 5k loop is a waterstation at Beavermead Park.
