Walkers It is not intended to be a competitive race, but a challenge to you to do your best, and enjoy the experience. Because we can’t guarantee that no one will run, prizes will be for participation rather than the fastest time.
Children’s Fun Run Saugeen Shores Children’s PLAY network organizes an 800M fun run for children 8 and under. Children whose parents enter one of our races may be entered with their parent on-line. Children may also enter on the day of the race at the Wellness fair in Southampton Coliseum.
We encourage everyone to register online. However, paper registrations can be downloaded and brought to the Southampton Coliseum, Southampton, from 6:30-8:00 pm Friday, May 31st. Package pickup, last minute registrations, prize distribution and lunch will take place at the Coliseum. Instructions by email will be sent out to on-line registrants in the week preceding the race.
