Guelph Thanksgiving Day Races 2016
supporting Guelph General Hospital

Guelph's oldest family races, since 1894.  Seven races run consecutively around Exhibition Park.  A distance for everyone.  You can run your race and then cheer on your family in the next.

There is a family discount of 10% when you register three or more family members at the same time.  After filling in the details for one registrant, use the Add Another Participant button.  The discount will be applied at checkout.

We keep the entry fees as low as we can and they cover the costs of the race.  That means that it is pledge dollars that enable the races to support Guelph General Hospital and bring lifesaving equipment to our community. Be sure to ask your friends and family for pledges after registering - turn your passion for running into support for our local Hospital!

The top three fundraisers to raise $250 or more will receive a $150, $100 or $50 Running Works gift card. And everyone else to raise $100 or more will receive a $20 gift card.

Chip timed race

The races will be timed using Ipico chip technology.  You will be given a chip that matches your bib number.  This chip needs to be fastened to your shoe.  We will retrieve the chip at the finish line.  It is very difficult to figure out a time for you if you do not wear the chip on your shoe.
