Lynne's Legacy Run is comprised of a 10K run, 5K run/walk, and a 1K Kids Run (all events are chip timed). All courses are out and back, on a fast, flat, paved, scenic waterfront trail (the Kids Run is not on the waterfront trail, but it is paved and out and back).

The race supports both Reach Forth, a sports organization in Hamilton, and the Juravinski Cancer Centre of Hamilton.

The inspiration behind this race derives from Lynne’s legacy. Lynne was a lifelong, avid runner who volunteered and worked with Reach Forth from the age of 16. In December 2009, Lynne was diagnosed with a rare, terminal form of biliary cancer, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, receiving treatment at the Juravinski Cancer Centre.

Lynne knew what it meant to live intentionally, with hope and faith, and she used the last years of her life to challenge others to live with a purpose, living and leaving a legacy now, as they shape what their #legacyis.
