For those of you who are looking to get on track with your news year’s resolution to keep fit, and those of you gearing up for the 2019 race season, there is no better time to lace up your runners. Our 5K chip timed run along the waterfront at Heritage Park in Barrie is the perfect way to start off on the right foot.

Kids 13 and under who register (for either race) will get a bunny backpack, take part in our Egg Hunt and have a chance to take home one of our BIG plush bunny friends.
