Canada Day wouldn’t be the same without the annual road race.
For the 34th straight year, the race will be held and it’s now sponsored by PT Works.
Entry fee is $20 and registration takes place Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the start location on Memorial Drive.
Each runner receives a t-shirt and medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division. All participants are also eligible for door prizes.
The race starts at 9 a.m. and organizers are Marc Denommee, 497-9099 and Cosmo Ianiro, 493-0080.
All runners are asked to be at the starting point, Marathon Beach, at 8:45 a.m.
There will be a one-lap race of 5 km and another of two laps, 10 km.
Divisions include junior 15-19, senior 20-29, veteran, 30-39; sub master, 40-49; master (1), 50-59 and master (20) 60 and over. The race is open to men and female runners.
The runners will travel down Memorial Drive and turn left into the parking lot at Lee Park and follow the Parks and Facilities gravel road, turning right on the bike path and then they will veer right off the bike path into the parking lot at the radio station.
From there the field will turn left on Main Street East, left onto Oak Street East and continue up Oak to Murray where they will again turn left and then continue on Memorial Drive to the finish line.
