We’d appreciate it if you could reply by end of today (September 8, 2013) as we need to confirm the numbers with the restaurant.

This year’s course will be modified, but is still challenging and fun nonetheless!

Following the event, we will congregate to Red Cranberries Restaurant (601 Parliament Street) for a delicious bowl of chili (vegetarian option is Mac & Cheese)!  ***Please let us know if you will be attending BOTH the run and dinner.***  It is absolutely imperative that we have an accurate headcount, so the restaurant can service and have enough food for our group.  $10 for grub, please bring cash to the event!

Pathways to Education Saturday Run

Juliana Tobon, our charity liaison for the Island Race, wants to remind you about this Saturday’s run:


The students from Pathway to Education in Winnipeg have requested to run with our group on the Saturday before the race (September 7). I have planned a 3 km and 5 km route for us to run together. For those interested in only doing those distances, you are welcome to join the students for breakfast at the Tim Hortons in their hotel, and to go to the outdoor swimming pool in their hotel (bring your swim gear).


For those interested in doing the long run, here is the route (I will then send around various turn-around points).


We will meet the group at Carlton and Jarvis at 8:30 am.


Here is the 3 km route:


Here is the 5 km route (Note the street we run to):


If you haven’t already, please let me know if you DO plan to join and what distance you plan to run 
(email: juliana.i.tobon@gmail.com).


I don’t think there has been enough interest in brunch so far, but still, let me know if you are interested in brunch after the long run.
