WALTON RACEWAY FACILITY RULES + REGULATIONS
Here are just some of the facility details and information to keep you safe!
Ready to Re-Open: While we have been operational since May, we participated in Huron County Economic Development‘s Ready to Re-Open Huron webinar in an effort to ensure we are employing the most up-to-date best practices available to us.
We’ve navigated some difficult waters being included in the Stage 1 Framework for businesses that could reopen earlier on, but we recognize that consumer confidence is our greatest asset right now! This webinar was not only informative with a great variety of knowledgeable contributors, but it also featured a Q&A at the end which helped to address any additional questions that remained.
Whether you’re already open or you’re THIS close to opening with Stage 3, this is a great asset to have in your COVID-19 preparedness bank!
SOCIAL DISTANCING: Everyone in your group must not leave your pit area unless they are watching their rider practice or using the portable washrooms. You must maintain 6 feet of distancing between yourself and all other attendees not in your group at all times. Failure to abide by these rules may result in eviction from the property without a refund at the discretion of the facility staff.
Vehicles attempting to enter onto the property without a rider registered will not be permitted to enter. All registration must be completed and waivers signed prior to arriving at Walton Raceway.
MASKS: Masks must be worn at all times when social distancing cannot be maintained. Please note, only mechanics and riders will be permitted to enter the staging area. All mechanics must wear a mask at all times while in staging.
In our community of Huron County please know that you must have face coverings when visiting any of the wonderful business in our area.
Starting July 17, face coverings are required to be worn at businesses in Huron and Perth counties.
The instructions issued by Dr. Miriam Klassen, the area’s Medical Officer of Health, state that business owners-must implement the policy for everyone entering commercial establishments.
“These additional instructions for commercial establishments that are open to the public build upon the diligent work many are already doing to ensure physical distancing and hand sanitizers,” said Dr. Klassen in a news release. “Face coverings are extra protection to prevent COVID-19 spread, they also send a message that the wearer wants to protect others.”

CAMPING: The gates close at 8:30pm both Friday and Saturday night. If you have missed the gate cut-off, please park to the right-hand side of the laneway far enough back to accommodate for the gates opening. Do not block the laneway of the house.
All persons staying at your campsite must be named in your online registration with contact information provided.
PARKING: There are over 75 acres of pit space to spread everyone out, please respect the parking staff at all times. ALL VEHICLES AND RVS must be 25-feet apart, minimum, in pits. All camping trailers must NOT have awnings facing each other. This follows all social distancing protocols.
- If you bring an EZ-Up it MUST go behind your RV trailer instead of to the side
WAIVERS: If you have already registered your waiver once, we will simply check you in at the facility – no need to do it again! If everyone in your vehicle has NOT filled out a waiver, click HERE. All waivers must be signed prior to entering the facility.

Only those within your pit over 16 years are permitted to drive them. All motorized vehicles must be parked after 6pm. Is it fun to ride the trails after supper? For sure. Do you want to have to pack up and leave when we find you? Doubt it.
PROPERTY LIMITS: Our property is limited to the north side of Walton Road only. We do not own the quarry/gravel pit to the south of Walton Road, and if you enter that property you are leaving Walton Raceway and crossing into private property with NO TRESPASSING signs posted. The OPP have been patrolling the gravel pit and will issue trespassing charges to anyone they find in breach of the private property fence line.
