Thank you to everyone who participated in last year’s race. Once again we had several course records and healthy participation rates in all events. Hopefully this winter we have decent training weather and great turnouts.
We have several changes planned for the 2015 edition: new medals, different food offerings, new registration company and new timing program. Many things are the same – same great volunteers, same courses, and same great scenery!
Please read the participant’s guide before sending the RD questions – it is very comprehensive!

Race day parking is available around the Ancaster Community Centre. The rear lots fill early on Saturday morning so if you’re in the 50K, 25K or 10K you are better to look for a spot in front or on the south side of the Ancaster Community Centre. When this lot fills there is plenty of plenty across from the centre at the Ancaster High School.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL TRAILERS BE PERMITTED ANYWHERE ON THE SITE.
POST RACE FOOD
We hope to provide you a nice assortment of restorative food and fluid after your event. You will need to be wearing your race bib to gain access to the food tent. Menus for each race are below
100 & 50 Milers will be able to place a bag under tent cover at the Start/Finish area on Saturday morning before the 6:00 AM race start.
100 Milers will also be able to place a drop bag for Aid Station #1 (GATEHOUSE). These must be placed in the designated spot at the Start/Finish area on Friday May 24th. These bags will be transported to A.S.#1 by volunteers. 100 Mile runners should be aware that these bags will not be transported back to the start/finish until late Sunday morning. For those who wish to have them sooner they will need to drive (4K) to AS#1 to retrieve them. Most 100 Mile runners do not use a drop bag at AS#1 as the loop at Sulphur Springs is only 20K.
