Thanks for a great race! Results and recap here.

The first ever Harvest Half (and Quarter) Marathon!

When Wesley Korir trains in Canada, he does so on the rural gravel roads of Wellesley Township.  

Korir, 2012 Boston Marathon Champion and current Member of Parliament in Kenya, has founded the Kenyan Kids Foundation of Canada to support various initiatives in Cherangany, Kenya.  This race (and pre-race pasta dinner) will serve as a fantastic racing experience, a fundraising opportunity for the KKFC, and a great opportunity to explore the great community of Wellesley Township.
