Thousand Islands is coming up quickly and we wanted to send some final reminders. Please read through this entire email so that you're ready for your run! 

Transfer Deadline: Tuesday August 8th at 6pm: 

If you need to change any info related to your registration please let us know before Tuesday, August 8th at 6pm. We won't be able to make any changes after that time, so be sure to reach out soon if you need anything.

We'll have a few spots available for those who would prefer to register in person on August 12th or 13th, but signing up online guarantees your spot!

Finisher Medals:

Who doesn't love a commemorative race medal?! If you want a finisher medal, but haven't ordered one, let us know. When you registered online, there was an option to add a medal to your order, but let us know if you opted to not have a medal but have changed your mind.

We will also bring extra medals to the race, in case you want to add them to your order at the last minute. 

Orientation and Bib Pickup: 

We'll have an in-person orientation on Saturday August 12th, at 5pm, at Centeen Park, in Brockville. You'll also be able to pick up your bib on-site from 3pm to 6pm that day.

If you're not able to make it but want to do a bit of course recon, we encourage you to watch this virtual orientation. If anything is unclear or if you have more questions, you can email

Watch the virtual orientation video

Getting to the Event:

There's limited parking in Brockville but we recommend parking in the nearby community and walking/biking to the start line. Above all, please consider carpooling.

Free Race Photos!

Bring your smile, or your game face, and keep an eye out for our Race Photographers on Race Day. The photos are FREE for anyone who participates. They're sponsored by Intercede Communications.

When to Arrive:

We recommend showing up one hour before the race, to find parking, get your bib, warm up, and make your way to the start line. We'll be set up at Centeen Park, starting at 7am.
