Huntsville Summer Walk In Clinic

Huntsville does not normally have a walk in clinic.  But over the summer months, our local family physicians who have offices in the Medical Professional Building, have a rotating walking schedule through their offices.

The main purpose of the Summer Walk In Clinic, which runs from July 1st until Labour Day, is to take some of the pressure off of the Emergency Room and to allow those that really need emergent care have quicker and better accesses.  During the summer, the ER can get up to a 6 hour wait, but this time dramatically goes down when people go to the walk in clinic instead of the ER.  If someone comes to the walk in clinic and they need emergent care, then the family physician communicates with the ER physician and we get the ball rolling to make the patient better.

On IronWeek, the summer walk in clinic is open:

  • Friday: 9-3:30pm
  • Saturday: 9-2pm
  • Sunday (Race Dat): 12-6pm

The location of the building where the clinic: 348 Muskoka Road 3 North, Huntville, ON

The exact office number where the clinic will be held will be taped to the front doors.  No narcotics are dispensed or renewed in these clinics.   Please bring a valid provincial health card.  If you are out of country, your payment will be anywhere between $30-$100 Canadian.

The Ironman Muskoka Shuttle Bus System

Thanks to the fantastic and super generous Rotarians, we have a great way for athletes and spectators to get around over the course of the weekend.

There are shuttles that are leaving from Deerhurst and heading towards downtown Huntsville regularly to help you keep your car at your accommodations.  If your accommodations are not on the bus route, then by all means drive to somewhere close to one of the pick up stations and catch a ride in by the shuttle system.

On race day, there will be buses taking spectators out to Dwight and Baysville to enjoy the sights and sounds of these great little communities.

Getting out to see the athletes on the bike course:

  1. Dwight has a great beach for families to hang out at, build sandcastles and swim until you can’t swim no more! Make sure you bring a towel and your swimsuits with you! There are some cafe’s down in this quaint little village for you to grab a snack at as well.
  2. Baysville is a great little town in Lake of Bays, where there is a great park, lots of cafes and restaurants, and of course the award winning Lake of Bays Brewery. Check in there, hang out on their patio and what the bikes go by.

Getting out to see the athletes on the run course:

There are many great vantage points to get out on the run course. Of course you could drive, but why drive when there is a shuttle bus system in place. The roads are still open, but if you have your own bike, and you handle it safely and according to Ontario laws, you can get around this way as well. There are a number of great things to do along the course, and tons of cafe’s, restaurants, and stores to stop into along the way.

Here are the three main stops:

  1. Huntsville Place Mall: this is close to the fourth aid station. There is are a number of large chain and family owned stores in this area, plus is about a 500m walk to a playground that is right on the run course (on Meadow Park Drive)
  2. Boston Pizza and River Mill Park: These are right downtown. Hop off here, join the massive festival that we are having in the downtown where there are a number of opportunities for the kids to have fun in River Mill Park. Grab some street chalk, get your face painted, jump in the bouncy castle, or find a quiet corner to sip away at a beverage of your choice.

Here is a link to the interactive map about where the pick up and drop off stations are.

Sunrise Swim for Hospice


On August 28th 2015, just before the first, and only, Ironman Muskoka, TriMuskoka and Hospice Huntsville hosted a “Sunrise Swim for Hospice”  charity open water swimming event.  We figured if Kona had the Underpants Run, then we would put a Muskoka spin on things and incorporate the incredible beauty of our area, and the access to our incredible waterway system, to good use for a great charitable cause.

This event was an early morning, fully supported 1.6 km casual and non-competitive swim to raise money for Hospice Huntsville.  Swimmers gathered at Camp Kitchen, which now is the location of the swim start of the Ironman 70.3 Muskoka, and headed off for a warm up swim around Alice Island and back to Camp Kitchen for coffee, tea, and some homemade muffins and goodies.

As this was an incredible event that supported an incredibly vital health care service to our community, our club is resurrecting the Sunrise Swim for Hospice for this years Ironman 70.3 Muskoka.
