Wow – time flies when you’re having fun and we sure did at our 8th run! We mixed things up this year and started at Rosehall Run Vineyards. It was a perfect morning for a run – just the right temperature (even if we did have to run into a light wind)!
Our runners made it to the finish line at The Old Third Vineyard (slightly over 10.5km from the start) and were greeted by friends, family and some Flow Water (thanks Neal Brothers Foods).
While ours is not a race, we do reward the first three women and first three men who make it to the end. What do they win you might ask? A complimentary registration to our 2019 run and bragging rights! Congratulations to Jeff Green, Dan Kunz, Dylan Barlow, Nat Slomka, Megan Filion and Kate Barrett for being super speedy!
The 10+km runners were all nourished with an incredible meal prepared by chefs Karin Desveaux and John Schneeberger of Loyalist College and Albert Ponzo from The Royal Hotel with support from Frank Bryne and Paul Seneca. The vibe was set with chill tunes from DJ Ombudsman (aka Hri Neil) and lots of libations from our runner partners.
Here are a few of our favourite pictures captured by Micheal Grills at Shoal Workroom (the full gallery can be found here) and by Peter Moczulak (full gallery here)
A big thanks to all of our volunteers, community partners and runners! We’ll be posting updates on our charitable contributions for this year and run date for 2019 soon.
