Start Site Location & Parking:  West Shawnigan Lake Park located next to Camp Pringle in Shawnigan Lake. If driving, go west off the Trans-Canada Highway onto Shawnigan Lake / Mill Bay Road; Take a right onto Shawnigan Lake Road that turns into Renfrew Road; Take a left onto West Shawnigan Lake Road; The park entrance is on the left directly past the Camp Pringle entrance.  It is recommended you find your start site in advance of the event so you know where to go.  Parking at the start site is limited to 110 cars.  You are encouraged to arrange to carpool or be dropped off and picked up on the day of the event.

Shuttle Options are available (limited seats).  Pre-book and pre-pay by August 26.  Drop-off/pick-up times and locations still to be determined and will be shared with those who register for the shuttle option.

Finish Site Location and Information:  Glenora Trails Head Park area, Duncan. The event will be 21.1 km long.

Route: Map can be found here.

Condition of Trail:  The Trans Canada Trail has been built along the old rail bed so it has a rough surface and, in some cases, there will be dips and hollows from dried up rain puddles and larger sized rocks.  Please wear good shoes and watch your footing at all times.  We encourage you to do your training along this route so you get used to the terrain.

Awards:  As incentive to train you should know that each finisher will receive a medal upon completion; and special awards will be given out for the first male and the first female to complete.

Helpful Hints can be found here.

Volunteers still needed:   We are still looking to fill some volunteer spots in this event.  If you know of anyone who might be interested please have them call Kyle Laberge, Recreation Programmer, 250.252.7015 or send Kyle an email
