Around the Bay Race Reconnaissance Run

This Sunday 9th March a group of us are heading down to run a portion of the Around the Bay Race route.

Our plan is to leave at 7:30am from Second Cup, Aurora.

We will drive down the QEW and exit at North Shore and head east to LaSalle Park, half way along North Shore Blvd.

The run route will be East on North Shore to the hospital, turn around and back to the park to replenish water if needed (8.9k).  Continue out North Shore and ultimately down to Dundurn Castle, turn around and back to LaSalle Park. The full distance is 24k.

For those who want to make the run shorter, at the top of the big hill at Plains Road turn back, now 18k.

The map is on MapMyRun: 12.14 km North Shore Route;

More importantly, after the run we will go over to JC HOT Bagels at Guelph Line and New Street. It is in Burlington, east on North Shore, past the QEW,  continue on Lakeshore, then North on Guelph line – about a ten minute drive.
Sounds like there will be about 12-15 people coming so lots of abilities and various distances available to run from  9k – 24k. 

The weather is currently showing -4 for Sunday so pack your shorts and bikinis!!
