Meaford Harbour 5K Run/Walk Returns to Live Event

After a two year hiatus, the Meaford Harbour Run/Walk returns to a live event format on July 9, 2022 at 9am at the Rotary Meaford Harbour Pavilion.

This July marks the 26th year of the run/walk. Over this time, with the generosity of our community, this event has raised over $750,000 in support of our local hospital.

Each year approximately 500 individuals gather at the start line, some hoping to set a new personal best time, others just looking to enjoy a leisurely walk around our beautiful harbour with friends and family.

Bring your dog, push a stroller, gather your club members together and head down to the Harbour.

For the young at heart, there will be a kids 1km race starting at 8:30am. Main event starts at 9am sharp with the runners leaving first, followed by the walkers 2 minutes later.

This year all proceeds will be directed towards improving access to Mental Health services in our area. This is a timely objective, given the toll that the pandemic has taken on this aspect of the health of our community.

Preregistration is strongly encouraged. Register online at mhfoundation.ca and look under the News tab for a link to the registration page. If you cannot come, please consider a pledge to a friend or family member who is taking part.
