RACE DAY IS TUESDAY,
JUNE 4TH, 2013 , 7:00pm!
Note: 7:00 p.m. Start on Jerseyville Road at Martin's Side Road Combined 5K and 10K start on the sound of the Canon.
The 5 kilometer race is a challenging track that has three hills. The first hill soon after the start of the race will have you slow down to correct your speed. The second hill is barely detectable as it the track wends its way through a neighbourhood and the race finishes with the steepest of the three hills just before the finish.

The 5 kilometer race starts on Jerrseyville Road at Martin's Side Road. The race begins at 7:00 p.m. - at the same time as the 10K Race. Early on, runners descend into the valley by the Lions Club Pool and the rise back to grade on the other side. Tree lined, mature neighbourhoods provide the backdrop for the next 2-3 kilometers with spectators cheering runners on past a couple of water stations. A right turn back onto Jerseyville Road signals the descent toward the Lions Club Pool once more with the last hill demanding a runner's last bits of energy to claim the rewards waiting for them at the finish line (ovations, drink and supper).
