A BRC Running Series Event
in partnership with Saucony Canada & Black Toe Running
Saturday August 25th - 30k starts at 6:00 pm* 15k starts at 6:30 pm



Great Medals & Swag! Who needs another shirt right? 
Even at this low price you get cool SWAG - Headlamps!



Run in the evening of Saturday August 25th, 15k or 30k, dress up, as any favourite Shakespeare character, have fun and most of all, don’t dig too deep into those pockets.

Our first year hosting this event will be a low cost, "some frills", fun event. Of course, we’ll have Enfield Timing there and medals for all finishers. Plus post Race treats and more! And a few 'surprises'

Please note: there are no refunds for this event. All registrations are considered final sales. You may transfer your registration to another runner right until race day for a $15 fee. 

The event will start in the Hamlet of Ashbridges Bay Park and venture out into the Leslie Spit and Cherry beach areas, somewhat similar to the old Midsummer Nights Run route but with minimal road usage as we prefer with our events.

We will cap the registrations at 1000 which will surely sell out fast. Make sure you are a part of this great first year! Stay tuned for more details and online registration links!
