All Pledges from this event will be going to the
London Track 3 Ski School
The London Track 3 Ski School, a non-profit association, is a leader in providing downhill ski programs for children and adults with developmental, physical, visual and hearing challenges. Students are provided with an exhilarating physical and social activity that otherwise would be unavailable.
The philosophy of the Association is that people with challenges should be given the chance to experience the joy of skiing while having equal access to high quality instruction and appropriate equipment in order to maximize skill development.
London Track 3 is operated entirely by volunteers and has an ongoing requirement for new funding. Funding is required for annual operating cost, capital expenditures and for the upgrade and replacement of existing equipment. Our mission is to provide a safe, enjoyable and rewarding downhill skiing experience for challenged individuals.

PLEASE NOTE that due to construction at Springbank Park, the 2017 event will take place at Springbank Gardens, 285 Wonderland Road South. As a result of this move, the normal 2.3k (natural loop of the West end of Springbank Park) will be replaced by a 2k for the 2017 event.

Due to the forced location change for the 2017 event, we do not have course maps available at this time. We hope to have this posted in October. The only distance that will change is the ~2.3k (natural loop of Springbank Park) will become a 2k. All distances (2k, 5k, 10k) will start and end at Springbank Gardens; as always, the Kiddy Trot will use the final stretch of the race course.
The information below is applicable to the normal Halloween event, when taking place in Springbank Park, and does not apply for 2017.
A certified rolling, 5k loop course of Springbank Park. One loop for 5K and two for 10K. A single shorter loop for the 2.3K (complete West loop of Springbank; will NOT go through Dam Hill parking lot in 2017).
The Kiddy Trot is approximately 250m, including a mild uphill stretch, using the same finish as the 5k and 10k.
