2015 REPORT - In spite some heavy wind, people made some incredible times on Saturday during the 1K, 5K & 10K and again on Sunday for the half and full marathon. Almost 20% of our marathoners were Boston Qualifiers with the wind pushing them down the Red Hill, giving us the rank of #1 Canadian Boston Qualifing Race once again!

Congratulations to everyone. No matter the distance or the time, you ran or walked with pride and helped us raise tens of thousands of dollars for so many great charities. THANK YOU!
