Venue Specifics

Race headquarters is located on the main floor of Burlington's oldest high-school. Racers and spectators can stay warm in the gym or cafeteria before being piped out to the start line. Animals are NOT permitted in the building unless they are service animals. The school has both change rooms and washrooms available for use before, during and after the event.

Best Costume Award

Did You Know that wearing a kilt would get you arrested?

Yes -- but that was in 1746! By decree of King George, Highland dress was outlawed by the passing of the Dress Act, with the intent of suppressing Highland culture. A first offence was a six-month in prison sentence; second offence was a seven-year exile to a work farm. The ban remained in effect for 35 years. Let's celebrate the lifting of the kilt (ban) in 1781. Come dressed in your best Scottish gear and you'll be eligible to win the "Best Costume" award and maybe even become a poster child for the race

PRE RACE DETAILS

Race kit pick up

There are two ways to get your race kit: in advance or on race day. In both cases, knowing your race number in advance will speed up the process. You can obtain your race number here or in your registration confirmation. Racers are strongly encouraged to pick up their race kit in advance.

Day of Registration

You are strongly encouraged to register for this event in advance as this race sells out EARLY. If you do decide to try and register on race day, please fill in a Registration Form and proceed directly to the table marked “Race Day Registration” where your registration will be processed. Payment for race day transactions will be via CASH only.

Due to the success of this event, we can not guarantee that race day registration will be an option so please register early to avoid disappointment.
