The timing of this run is intentional, as Christy McLeod turns 40. To celebrate this milestone, she is determined to raise $10,000 for an incredible youth organization, bring together community and run a 1/2 Marathon. There will be multiple organizations who run marthons regularly in attendance and volunteering. Whether this is your first 1/2 or your 50th, you are welcome.
All Sign-Up Fees and Donations will go directly to: Girls Who Leap. Christy has seen first-hand how this organization mentors young girls into athletes, supports them in their high-school and young adult years and champions them in every way. They don't just show up to support them 1 day a week, rather, work with many daily, all throughout the year, no matter what. Let's encourage them with supporting who they are and what they do.
More information about them can be found at: https://www.girlswholeap.com/
The Vedder Rotary Trail is a beautiful 20km loop around the Vedder/Chilliwack River. We will have an additional 1km added on to make it into a 1/2 Marathon run.
There will be a distinct 5km and 10km path marked off. Families and dogs are welcome!
We are planning to start the 1/2 Marathon at 8am, the 10km at 9:00 and the 5km at 9:30am.
June can be very hot, so we are working to keep that it mind. Please check your email closer-to, or here on the website, for updates on start times.
There will be 2 water stations along the trail, so please come prepared for anything above and beyond that, that you may need.
We will have a doctor on site to assist if necessary, but will call 9-1-1 for all emergencies.
There will be some food and refreshments following the race. If the weather is very rainy, the tents will suffice for a time, but then we will have another location set aside for meals, should people choose to mingle post-race.
