Baden Road Races 2014
New name, new challenge, same great event!


Link to the results on the left. 

The signature distance of this event is the Baden Hill 7 Miler, which ascends the aerial Baden Tower Hill.  Runners will climb the steep gravel slope and turn around at the top. At the top - which is the highest point in Southwestern Ontario - don't miss ringing the brass bell!  Also at this event are the Neil Dunford memorial 5 KM, as well as 1 KM and 200m events for children.  

For the past 35 years, Wilmot Township has been home to a great running tradition.  With various venues, courses, distances, charities, and even names over the years, one thing has remained - the passion and community support for a great running event.  We're thrilled to reboot this institution in 2014 with the first ever Baden Road Races!

We can't wait, and we hope you join us!

The Hill

The Baden Hill is the highest point in Southwestern Ontario. From the top, there's quite a view!

Because you won't have too much time to enjoy the view during the race, we're organizing a pre-run of the course with access to the hill. Join us on May 3 for a fun run/walk to the top to test the slope and enjoy the scenery! Register for free on facebook.

Just for fun, at the top, we're putting a 62lb iron bell for your ringing pleasure. 

Also, there is a prime at the hill: the lowest chip time from top-to-bottom (male and female) win a free pair of Saucony shoes!
