Trot To The Beach 2018
From Blenheim To Erieau The LONG Way

Trot To The Beach Turns 15!!!


 Trot To The Beach is the longest running and most popular 1/2 marathon and 5km event in Chatham Kent!!! Like we said said this will be the 15th year for this epic and amazing run. Last year we raised and handed out $16,000 between the Blenheim Youth Center, The Word Of Life Soup Kitchen and The Blenheim Fire Department!!! $16,000 THAT'S HUGE!!! You guys ROCK!!!

There won't be any major changes to the event this year but there will be some special surprises for our big anniversary run! The 1km "Tot Trot" was a HUGE hit so that will happen again this year. And, we will keep 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 $200 in pledges, we refund your registration and you run for FREE!!!  So all you have to do is hit up 10 friends for $20 (that goes to local charities) and YOU run for FREE!!! Sweet deal!!!

This years charity recipients will again be the Blenheim Youth Center and The Word Of Life Soup Kitchen and we are hoping to have a little extra to spread around as well! 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 and have made it CK's most popular and logenst running 1/2 marathon and 5km event!!!

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