Featuring a rugged wide and single track trail that includes rolling terrain on a combination of potentially deep snow and packed trail sections. A little bit of everything on a beautiful backcountry course.
Frontenac Provincial Park, Sydenham, ON (directions)
The Park Office at Frontenac Provincial Park will be open for registration, washrooms, awards ceremony and to stay warm when not racing.
Daily park car pass is included with your race entry. Each car must display a pass while at Frontenac Provincial Park. Passes will be given out at race day registration. If you already have an annual/seasonal pass, please use that. Please car pool when possible as it’s the responsible thing to do, allows more room in the parking lot and the race is charged on a per car/permit basis.
If you don’t own a pair of snowshoes, we have a limited number of Dion Snowshoes for rent, and are available on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact us if you would like a pair reserved. Rental fee is $5/race and payable on race day at pickup. Other snowshoes may be available for rental at various Kingston and area outdoor stores.
