"The Huron Shore Run not only supports the Rotary Club and the Hospital Foundation who do important work in the community, but is the nicest running route in the province along the beautiful shores of Lake Huron. The volunteers who pull this event together raise needed funds for our community and do an extraordinary job organizing the race." James Scongack, Bruce Power
The Saugeen Track & Field Club has been a proud supporter and beneficiary of the Huron Shore Run. The Run aligns very well with the Club's objective of promoting a healthy lifestyle for area youth. The Run also provides the Club with its biggest source of funds which are used to promote athletics in Grey and Bruce Counties. Without the Huron Shore Run, the Club would have great difficulty offering programs to area youth. We are very thankful for our continued involvement. Brian Hilbers, Saugeen Track & Field Club
To say that the 2015 Huron Shores Rotary Run was a huge success is an understatement. This year was one for the record books! Not only was there a record number of participants, but there was a new record set for the half marathon. This would not have been possible without the endless hours the Rotarians and other volunteers put in to make this day happen. From the time the participants arrived to register until the last award was presented, the participants and spectators alike were all treated to an event they will not soon forget. Don Matheson, Saugeen Shores Councillor.
