Saturday May 13, 2017 9:30 a.m. Wilmot Recreation Complex, Baden, ON
Kilometre for kilometre, this is the toughest road race we know of. The Baden Hill 7 Miler ascends the aerial Baden Tower Hill. Runners will climb the steep gravel slope and turn around at the top - don't miss ringing the brass bell! Also at this event are the Neil Dunford memorial 5 KM, as well as a 200m event for children.
For the past 38 years, Wilmot Township has been home to a great running tradition. With various venues, courses, distances, charities, and even names over the years, one thing has remained - the passion and community support for a great running event. We're thrilled to continue the tradition in 2017 with the 4th annual Baden Road Races!
The Baden Hill is the highest point in Southwestern Ontario. From the top, there's quite a view!
Just for fun, at the top, we're putting a 62lb iron bell for your ringing pleasure.
Also, there is a prime at the hill: the lowest chip time from the bottom of the hill to the top of the hill and back (male and female) win a free pair of Saucony shoes!
