7th Edition of the “Wooly Bully Races” Amherst Island, Ontario.

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

The 10K race counts for points towards the KRRA members Race Series standings.  The 10K is also the final event in the ‘Tri-Island Series,’ which also includes the “Howe Island Hustle” and the “Wolfe Island 5K.”  Go to for details on both 2018 series.


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.

1K Fun Run

A timed event for children 5-12 years of age on an out and back course.  It will be timed but there will be no prizes for top runners.  Parents can run with their children if they feel it necessary but not required to register.   Each child will receive a souvenir ribbon at the finish line and refreshments.


The race site is at the farm of Dave Willard, Amherst Island, 600 South Shore Road. Signs will direct you to the sight once you leave the ferry.  There will be portable toilets and a baggage check will be provided.
