Can You Say Happy Mother's Day Primer?

Join us the weekend before Mother's Day for an amazing Half Marathon 21K (13.1miles), 10K and 5k Run/Walk out of the trendy Walkerville BIA.  The event starts in Walkerville and utilizes the gorgeous Windsor waterfront and Riverside drive for all races.  Participants will enjoy firefighters at the water/aid stations (lets plan for some twisted ankles that day) a great finisher's Le Chocolat inspired medal (all races) and of course lots of Chocolate inspired treats.   Stay after the race to enjoy all the shopping and great dining in Walkerville.   This year all participants get  wine (red and white) must be 19 years of age or older to pick up wine!

Race Kit Pick Up

Race Kit pick up will be at 370 Riverside Drive East at the Riverfront Plaza Festival stage across the street from Caesars Windsor on the waterfront. We will be inside beginning on April 29th at 3:00pm to 8:00pm and again on April 30th from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
There is tons of parking at the stage and it is easy access in and out. Friends can pickup for each other. The person picking up needs a photo ID and no one under the age of 19 can receive the wine swag.

 

The Swag

  The First year we started this race we gave away a Coach Purse, the second and third year it was wine boxes shaped like a purse. This Year we have a special surprise for you.  With our friends at Pelee Island Winery we are launching together a wine brand called Running Girl Wine!  It won't be available for mass consumption until 2017 in Ontario but maybe purchased at the Winery later this summer.  You get it exclusively earlier and we will have a big announcment later this year about our new Charity -RunningFlat Charities and how we are helping to build tracks in communities.   The wine tote will be custom branded as well with the a bottle of Chardonnay and bottle of Baco Noir Cabernet.  Every registrant gets a kit in the 5K, 10K and 21K events (must be 19 years of age or older to collect at race kit pick up).  That is how we say Happy Mother's Day!
