Some parents have asked about driving directions to SNRC.  Here is a link to the directions:

A condensed version is here.

Be aware that if you take the Highway 406 route into Dain City (aka Welland) that the bridge over the canal at the race course is closed to vehicle traffic.  You will be able to get to the parking lot that is at the former John Deere factory (Canal Street) , but this is not the side you want.   You need to take highway 54 around to Dain City.   Use a GPS, or take the Highway 20 route.  The Highway 20 route puts you on the right side.     However the best route is the one that I take and it is Victoria Avenue through Vineland to Highway 3

For those taking Vineland Avenue (Highway 24)

  • take QEW Niagara
  • take Victoria Avenue Exit (highway 24)
  • follow Victoria Avenue all the way to Highway 3 (this is about 25 minutes)
  • take a left at Chambers Corners (there is an Avondale on the corner)
  • this is Forks Road West
  • Take Forks West road all the way until you get to the old Welland Canal
  • The race course is right there,  It cannot be missed.  Seriously you will not miss it.

For those taking HWY 406

  • •I would strongly suggest that you check Google Maps for this one
  • the bridge closure at the canal (aka race course) puts you on the wrong side of the race course where the parents tent will be.

For those taking HWY 20 through Smithville and Wellandport

  • Turn off HWY 27 on to Broadway
  • Cross the canal and turn right (South) on to Canal Bank Street
  • Turn right (West) on to Forks Road
  • The parking lot is on the left as soon as you cross the bridge
