Come check out the Middleton Heart Run, in the beautiful Heart of the Valley, on the morning of Saturday August 12th. The run has a challenging but rewarding terrain meant to bring beginners and seasoned runners together for one awesome run! Distances are: 5KM, 10KM, or 25KM.  Water stops will be available along each route: the 5 KM route will have one stop, the 10KM will have a minimum of 2 stops and the 25KM will have a minimum of 5 stops.

The run starts at 9AM (8AM for the 25KM), and will start and finish at the Rotary Park in Middleton, where there will be refreshments before and after the run for fuel! Check-in and same-day registration starts at 8:30 AM (7:30AM for the 25KM).

Exciting news Heart Runners!

We are partnering with Crystal Veinot, RMT, RYT® 200, to offer runners the option of cooling down from their run with a 30 minute yoga class included in the cost of registration! We will be offering two sessions: one at 10:30 am, the other starting at 12:00 pm on the day of our event (Saturday, August 12th). Our yoga mat supply is limited, so we encourage runners to bring their own!

Registration is $25.00 for all distances, and all participants will receive a unique collector's medal made out of wood, and another special swag item - this year, we have ordered running socks by Louis Garneau. Please note, we are not able to offer refunds for this event.

Here is an image of our apparel this year!


And for the first time we are giving out UNIQUE participation medals, made of pure Canadian cedar. Socks and a medal - a great winning combo!

Please note that all participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. This is a family-friendly event and as such will not be timed.
