Terroir Run Supports Slow Food

The Terroir Run was founded on our philosophy that a healthy lifestyle is all about balance. Eating fresh, seasonal food. Drinking local wines and beers. Enjoying the great outdoors. Getting daily exercise. Spending time with family and friends.

Our longterm goals are to develop Terroir Runs across the globe. Anywhere there is a community that respects and celebrates local food and drink – we’ll be there! As we grow, we’ll be looking for partners to help us. For us, an obvious place to start is in communities with Slow Food conviviums. Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global grassroots association that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

Starting in 2012, all of our Terroir Runs will donate $5 from each registration to the Slow Food convivium in that community. As our first run is in Prince Edward County – we’ll be supporting Slow Food the County. Lucky for us – their supporting our run with volunteers! We’ll all be celebrating the good, clean and fair on Sunday, May 27th. Come join us!

The Art Of Terroir Run

As Terroir Run is focused on giving participants an immersive local experience – jog the landscape, taste the wines, eat our season’s freshest ingredients – we believe that including the arts is imperative. Visitors to Prince Edward County are already seeing the new posters by one of our favourite local illustrators, Amanda Emdin. We asked for a fun interpretation of the run for our poster, our Terroir Run Passports (entitle our runners to a free tasting at our participating wineries) and also on the back of the collector shirts to remind everyone where Terroir Run took them. It’s important to note that the image will be screened by another creative County arts organization Sparkbox Studio. We are proud to work with each and frankly wouldn’t be surprised if we see some other arts find their way into May 29th’s run. Please register online as space is limited.
