    The one loop course circles Lake of Bays and passes through the entire District of Muskoka, including Dwight, Dorset and Baysville.

    In the men's race we suspect that Sanders will close the gap to Amorelli throughout the 94 km’s of the bike here in Muskoka, but Amorelli is no slouch on two wheels. Amorelli, t
    he 2014 Ironman Brazil and 2015 Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico champion will have his work cut out for him on the run as Sanders is likely one of, if not the premier runners at the half distance right now when he is on his game.
