Dundas Sydenham Hill 2 km Time Trial


I have been casually running a time trial on Sydenham Hill in Dundas for many years. An amusement for our cycling friends. The 2 km course starts at the corner of Park and Sydenham. There is a cross walk line there. The finish is the larger telephone pole at Dyments (and Fallsview Rd). This gives you enough time to slow up and turn onto Fallsview...and check your time! I sometimes have a finish line sign (that disappears) on the hydro pole. The climb is around 100 m. in elevation. There is a Strava segment that I also set up. See below.
