This Wooly Bully is a terrific family event which has three different distances: 1K Kids Fun Run, 5K/10K races.

The 10K counts for points towards the KRRA Race Series standings. The 10K is also the final event in the “Tri-Island Race Series“, which also includes the “Howe Island Hustle” and the “Wolfe Island 5K.”


5/10K events held on a very scenic out and back route along the South Shore of Lake Ontario.  There will be at least 2 aid stations, each kilometer will be marked.

Race results will be available through Running By Design.

Amherst Island Ferry Info

Take the Amherst Island Ferry, located east of Bath, Ontario on Highway 33. The ferry departs from the dock located on Highway 33 (Bath Road), Millhaven, Ontario, every hour on the half hour. The race start times are designed to give passengers on the 8:30 a.m. trip across ample time to land on Amherst Island, get to the race site and warm up. The ferry departs the Island every hour, on the hour.

Shuttle Service

For those who do not want to take their vehicle on the ferry, here is some information on our shuttle service:
Park at the Loyalist Public Works Facility, located on County Road 4 north of Highway 33 and Millhaven (less than a kilometre) to catch the shuttle bus. It will pick up runners at at 7:00 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. and transport you to the ferry dock in Millhaven to board the 7:30 or 8:30 a.m. trips to Amherst Island. A bus will be parked at the dock in Stella to take you to the race site. The departure time from the site after the race is 11:30 a.m. It will return you to the Stella dock in time for the 12 noon crossing and the bus will be at the Millhaven dock to bring you back to your car. The charge is $5 per person, payable as you board the bus after the race.

Please note that because of reconstruction at the Millhaven ferry dock, parking at that location and boarding as a pedestrian is not an option. If you do not want to take your car on the ferry, we recommend that you take our shuttle.
