This video was shot and dedicated to all the Volunteers on the Island and Runners who stuck it out and ran a Half Marathon around an island in the middle of Lake Erie during and incredible once in a life time weather event. The day before it was sunny and 82 degrees and next morning a freak weather pattern settled in with 50 mile an hour sustained winds, 3.5 inches of rain in 3 hours and 45 degree temps. Like nothing anyone had seen and all the runners that started the race finished, claiming it was the most incredible race they had ever run. Frankly, we are use to hearing that on a great weather day and it still held true on the worst. The first two years were 82 degrees and sunny if you are new to the event and were wondering.
Welcome to the forth annual Pelee Island Winery Half Marathon. Canada’s most Southern Half-Marathon takes place on a remote Lake Erie Island, ending in a Winery. This exclusive event is limited to only 350 participants, who will enjoy the beauty of running around this pristine island, with Aid Stations every 2K with a Port-a-John. The course is measured and certified, as well as timed, surfaced with a mixture of pavement, gravel, and tar and chip. Registration includes a great Wine-inspired Tech Shirt Long Sleeve Hoodie, award winning medal, bib and a ticket to the best After-Run Party in running and Wine Tasting. For more picture and feedback about the event go to our Facebook page.
These are 2014 shirt and medal pictured below honouring the Monarch Butterfly. Our tradition is that the shirt always has the art work of the label of a Pelee Island Winery Wine.
Bring your sweetheart, friends and family, to stay the night and enjoy the run in the morning (you'll have to stay the night because the ferry doesn't cross early enough that day to get the Island in time for the run!) The night before there will be plenty of dinners and parties going on around the Island, of which you will be notified. You can also buy extra tickets for your guests to join you at the Winery for an extravagant luncheon starting at noon. Adults are $35 and kids under 11 years of age are $20 each. THIS IS VERY LIMITED SO BUY IT NOW DO NOT WAIT, IT SELLS OUT. RunningFlat has a NO REFUND policy.
PLEASE NOTE THE RACE IN 2016 IS ON A SATURDAY. We have heard the suggestions form the runners asking to move the race off the Sunday morning and onto the Saturday. That way they can race in the morning enjoy an amazing luncheon and spend the rest of the day enjoying and relaxing on the island and not worrying about catching the ferry home. This allows them to have another great morning on the island and then leave. We have decide to try this out and see how it works this year. Always trying to make improvements to the event where we can.
REGISTRATION IS IN CANADIAN FUNDS so you save almost $40
