From Blenheim to Erieau the   L-O-N-G WAY!

 

 Trot To The Beach is the longest running and most popular 1/2 marathon and 5km event in Chatham Kent!!! This will be the 14th year for this epic and amazing run. Last year with over 500 runners we raised and handed out $15,000 to our two local charities!!! $15,000 THAT'S HUGE!!! You guys ROCK!!!

There won't be any major changes to the event this year. The 1km "Tot Trot" was a HUGE hit so that will happen again this year. And, we will kepp all the incentives that could mean BIG savings for you! Incentives  like...

 - Discounts for spreading the word on Facebook! Click the special link from the Race Roster registration site to share the event on facebook. Every person that uses your link to register means you get $5 back up to the full cost of your registration, which means you can run for FREE!!!

 - Signing up in groups of 5 or more will get you a discount (must all register at the same time) 

 - And, if you collect $150 in pledges, we refund your registration and you run for FREE!!!

This years charity recipients will again be the Blenheim Youth Center and The Word Of Life Soup Kitchen. Both of these charities are a major part of our community and do amazing things for our friends and neighbours in Chatham Kent.

Come and be a part of this life changing event and see why SO many people love to Trot To The Beach!

I am super excited and can't wait to see you all out there!
