The Course

There will be a lead cyclist. We will have water at the 2km mark for all racers. The 8km racers will hit this water station again at the 6km mark.

We leave from the Pumphouse Theatre and follow the paths along the Bow River. The 4km route will turn around just before the 10th Street Bridge, where the 8km route will continue under 10th Street, cross over the 10th street pedestrian bridge, follow the north side of the river to the Memorial stairs, cross over Prince's Island and then follow the paths on the south side of the river all the way back to the Pumphouse Theatre.
 
The pathways will be slipery and coverd in snow in sections so please plan to be careful.
 
The event is timed (non-chip timed). Please ensure your bib is visible as you approach the finish line so we can get your manual time.

It will get dark quickly so PLEASE WEAR BRIGHT CLOTHING AND WEAR A HEADLAMP. All racers will be given a GLOWSTICK, but please ensure that even without that, you are visible. Wearing extra gowsticks is also encouraged.
