Annie Williams Park (in the middle of Bracebridge) is the base of operations of the event.
Exit Hwy 11 for Bracebridge and take Hwy 118 W (Ecclestone Dr. changes to Wellington Street) to Santa's Village Road. Turn left, and the park is two blocks on your left.
For car GPS navigation devices: 50 Santa's Village Road, Bracebridge
Parking, paddler registrations, pre-race information session, boat put-ins and prize presentation, all will take place at this park.
The start line is at Bracebridge Bay, which is an 1 ½ km paddle upstream from Annie Williams Park. Consider this as an excellent warmup prior to racing.
The finish line is at front of Annie Williams Park.
There will be outfitters on site for boat rentals, last minute items and possibly end-of-season specials on boats. See Paddle Shack, Algonquin Outfitters and LIV Outdoors.
