Wayne Gretzky was born here. Tiger Woods took his famous shot out of a fairway bunker to win the Canadian Open by a single stroke here. Each spring the oldest road race in North America is run here. The roots of Canada’s proud history of sport run wide and deep in the Heart of Ontario.
Celebrate the sports, the players and the plays behind Canada’s legacy as a breeding ground for some of the world’s greatest athletes.

Around the Bay Road Race, Hamilton

While this annual race occurs just once each spring, avid runners can still lace up and run Hamilton’s Around the Bay road race, the oldest road race in North America, on their own.

Head to the track

Catch horseracing excitement at Mohawk Racetrack or Flamboro Downs.
