The Starters Lists are ready!

Unfortunately for some, that also means the deadline has now passed to transfer their registration to somebody else, a small service we’ve been providing up to this point, and continue to do each year.

From this point forward in 2018, bib swaps will not be allowed, but if you now find yourself unable to attend and unable to get anything in return for your race fee, feel free to COME AND TAKE IN THE WEEKEND AS A SPECTATOR and experience the finish line fun, grab your welcome package which includes the official tshirt and a gift from the The Sweet Shop and not forgetting the yummy dinner on the Friday evening.  Your can take some comfort in also knowing this event’s best kept secret… it’s a fundraiser for the Tobermory Primary Place Childcare Centre and your race fee means a lot… it basically helps the centre stay open during the winter months in Tobermory.
