Description

Race and explore beautiful Brockville!

Run through a piece of Canadian history - the oldest railway tunnel as part of your 1000 Islands run course. We can't overstate it - with the music, lights, and shade in the tunnel, it is the best course feature we've ever seen!

Participants love:

  • The tunnel. Have we mentioned how amazing it is as a run venue? 
  • The short transition distances. It's our shortest transition of the year, giving you a chance for a really fast finish time.

Included in your registration is:

  • Bragging rights!
  • A FREE virtual bike fit from MyVeloFit.
  • A personalized race bib.
  • Professional timing from Sportstats.
  • On-course nutrition from F2C.
  • Race Photography from FinisherPix.
  • Post-Race snacks.
  • Podium prizes provided by Crank Coffee Co for the top 3 men, women, and non-binary athletes in each race.
  • Memories that you won't soon forget.

Important Deadlines:

  • Medal Deadline - July 13th. We keep our prices low and make the finisher's medal an optional add-on. If you want to commemorate this achievement with a finisher's medal, make sure to register before July 13th and add the medal to your order.
  • Shirt Deadline - July 13th. If you would like to pick up your souvenir shirt during bib pick-up or race day, it must be ordered before July 13th. If you miss the deadline, you can still order the shirt AT THIS LINK. The shirt will be available for online order starting August 12th. You can also try on some sample sizes at the event. 
  • Online Registration Deadline - August 8th at 6 pm. If you don't sign up by then, you can still sign up in person on race day, or at bib pick-up, subject to availability. Some of our races sell out, so make sure to sign up early!
