There are only approximately eight weeks left until the 31st Rotary Huron Shore Run, Walk, Roll kicks off on June 1st (2019).
The event is always a highlight on the Lake Huron shoreline and, more importantly, is a major community fundraiser.
The run has supported the local Saugeen Memorial Hospital, the Saugeen Track & Field Club for youth and Rotary Club Projects.
This year, the focus will be on Mental Health and the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation.
From the event’s early inception where only a few people took part, it has grown to almost 800 participants, many of whom are now international.
The half-marathon race is also accredited by the Ontario Roadrunners Association and gives runners an opportunity to compete against their own time and qualify for a marathon.
Ann Dennier of Southampton has already begun training for the the half Marathon
The day of the event also features the Health & Wellness Fair organized by the Town of Saugeen Shores at the Southampton Coliseum that brings together health professionals, healing services, live demonstrations and more … along with the awards ceremony.
