This is the enhanced Run Waterloo experience. The BOW continues in 2017 with the time-based series competition. The BOW V consists of these two events:

     40th Annual Waterloo 10 KM Classic (link)

     21st Annual Fall 5 KM Classic (link)

For the first time, BOW will include Overall and Masters prize money. This Battle is totally unique to the previous four, and future combinations will also change. 

This series is FREE to members, and $15 to non members. It includes an exclusive BOW V gift and a finisher's medal, and prize money.  Winners of each 10 year age group will also be recognized.  We will provide up-to-date results, stories, a meet and greet, and we hope to build something special for years to come!
