Hospital Foundation’s Harbour 5K Run This Weekend

The Meaford Hospital Foundation’s annual Harbour 5K run is this weekend, on Saturday, July 13.

Each year, hundreds of participants gather at the start line, some hoping to set a new personal best time, others just looking to enjoy a leisurely run or walk around our beautiful harbour with friends and family, and all working to raise funds for Meaford’s hospital.

Over the 28-year history of the event, more than $750,000 has been raised in support of our local hospital. Organizers are hoping this year’s event will raise $75,000.

Saturday’s events will start off with a one kilometre fun run for youth under age 12, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The five kilometre main event will start at 9 a.m. sharp, starting at the Rotary Harbour Pavilion.

Online registration closes at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 11. Advance registration and race kit pick up will be available at the Meaford Harbour Farmer’s Market on Friday, July 12, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Late registration is available in person for a $60 fee on Saturday, July 13, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
