Racing at its best

mynextkwraceFall has finally arrived, which means one of my favourite Run Waterloo races is just around the corner!

What makes the Fall Classic one of my favourite races?

  • The colours – this race is always perfectly timed with the leaves changing on the trees. Lots of reds, yellows, and oranges make it easy to run hard and forget about the pain as you take in the beautiful view.
  • The people – it is often one of the larger races of the year which means I get to see people I may not have seen in a while.
  • The food! – although I have to admit the food is pretty great at all Run Waterloo races, but sausages at the finish line really seal the deal.
  • And last but certainly not least – it’s FAST!

I look forward to seeing many of you out running or cheering at the upcoming Fall Classic! Want to run for free? Check out how you can enter for a chance to win an entry below!

    The best part of a race for me is the camaraderie and support – the Waterloo Classic was my first 10K race and everyone was amazingly supportive and helpful. Was offered a ton of tips on everything from pacing to nutrition. That experience made me excited to sign up for the Fall Classic too!

    Best part of the race is watching a community come together to cheer each other on. I also love the feeling of accomplishment once you’re done!

      Thanks Maria! That is the best!

    The quest for some sort of personal best and that great feeling when you cross the finish line.
