Participants hiking the longer distance will stagger start between 8:30 am and 8:45 am (first come, first served). Those hiking the shorter distance will stagger start between 8:45 am and 9:00 am.  Each hike will have 2 checkpoints with light refreshments and beverages. The checkpoints for the 7 km hike are at 3.5 km into hike and at the end. Checkpoints for the 20 km hike are 12 km into hike and at the end.  Trail Marshalls will be situated along the trail to help with directions.  Text or call Sandy, 416-317-3689 for additional “trailside” assistance.  The hiker in each hike distance category with the closest prediction to his/her actual time will be awarded a fabulous prize. Everyone will receive a spectacular souvenir badge. Prediction Pete, our first collectible badge character has a new friend, Prediction Parnika.
