Feeders must keep vehicles completely off the road surface, including the shoulder. Race organizers and local residents will not tolerate any litter or waste left behind. Feel free to find safe parking on Township Road 484 and simply walk to the feed area.

Instructions To Racers

Bottles and trash are only to be discarded in the feed zones. Failure to abide will result in fines.

Finish Line

The finish line is approximately 800m south Rolly View road on Range Road 233.

The finishing sprint must not cross the centre line. You will run the risk of being relegated or disqualified should you violate the centre line rule.
