RACE DAY KIT PICKUP:
8:30-9:45am at the Sydenham High School Cafeteria, Wheatley St and Rutledge Road (only a few blocks from the start/finish). Washroom facilities available in the school.
The start/finish line is located at the track in Sydenham. This picturesque 8km runs along the north shore of Sydenham Lake on the Cataraqui Trail. The course is relatively flat and fast with the exception of two small hills on the way out and two on the way back. The surface is a combination of 80% trail and 20% road. The turnaround is on Boyce Island, just past the bridge at Eel Bay. Course Map
