VERY IMPORTANT TORONTO ISLAND INFORMATION
Water Bottles – Please bring your own water bottle with you. The City of Toronto has banned plastic water bottles, so water in bottles will not be served as part of the post-race food. Water in jugs will be available for your water bottle after the race. Pop is also served with the post-race food.
Parking – There is plenty of parking in and around the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel. Please look (or google in advance) for the City of Toronto “Green P Parking”. There is also private parking sites located within a walking distance of the ferry docks.
Ferry Service – special Ferry Service to Hanlan’s Point will begin race morning at 5:30AM departing every half hour (i.e. 5:30AM, 6:00AM. 6:30AM) from the Ferry Terminal. We recommend that you arrive at the Ferry Terminal with enough time to pick-up your bib and ferry ticket and catch a ferry that departs 90 minutes before that start of your race.
