18075 Hurontario Street
Notes: The retired sand quarry is located 1km south of the town of Caledon Village on Hurontario (and 400m south of the Caledon Fair Grounds).  There will be a C3 Canadian Cross Training Club banner on the fence on the east side of Hurontario.  Most people will be traveling north up Hurontario.  Travel north up Hwy 10 (Hurontario) past Old baseline and up the big hill.  When you hit the lights at the top of the big hill, you are only 400m from entering the quarry.  The big grassy-berm on your left side (east) side has the quarry just down below. At the end of the 400m long grassy-berm you will see the entrance to the JAMES DICK CONCRETE factory on your right side. Pull into the parking lot, and immediately turn right, follow the gravel road through the gates, up on the grass field and you will see the swimmers and registration below.
