2012 REMEMBERrun

Thanks again to everyone who came out yesterday to the 4th Annual REMEMBERrun!

Recap: It was a chilly day, but after such a rainy week, everyone was just thankful that it didn’t rain. The REMEMBERrun started with a sombre ceremony at the Preston Legion, including the national anthem, a moment of silence, a prayer, and bagpipes.  A Run to Remember. The course was dry and fast, through the trails and paths at Riverside Park in Cambridge, Ontario.  Post-race features included an awards ceremony and hot food!

In total, 640 runners raised $7000 for the Poppy Fund.  Thanks for your support! Results: Winners on this Saturday are:

  • 5km: Marcus Noble &  Robert Brouillette (17:00) and Monica Lou (19:40)
  • 8km: Ken McAlpine (28:59) and Christine Weech (35:01)
