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!
Join us for Windsor’s only Half Marathon that has the beautiful Detroit Skyline as your course backdrop. The Half Marathon goes from the Bridge to Walker Road, utilizing the most scenic shoreline course in North America.

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!
