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!
