The first item in the previous post talked about staying motivated. If you’re a runner, a great way to keep up your enthusiasm is to enter a race. Several races are being held locally in the next little while, to support fitness but also to raise funds for worthy causes.
Next Saturday, May 26 the 5 and 10 k Run for Wells is being held at Kilbride Park, north Burlington, to support a clean water project in Ethiopia.
The following Saturday, June 2, but in the evening, is the 21st annual Moon in June 5 and 10 k race, in downtown Burlington, which raises money for the Halton Trauma Centre.
On Sunday, June 10, at the Brant Conservation area in Brantford, the Paris Runner’s Den’s Phlox Run offers 6, 10 and 25 km races to help fund trail-building.
And in Grimsby on the evening of Tuesday, June 26, the Tim Hortons Peachbud 5 and 10 k raises funds for the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
This list isn’t comprehensive, but it’ll give you some ideas to run with.
