The 49th running of the Highland Yard is an annual charity run benefiting Places For People in Haliburton County.  Places for People creates affordable and supportive housing for those in need and currently serves seven families -- including 17 children and 2 single mothers -- in five different residences. 

Places for People is in the process of expanding our Cardiff, Ontario property, which will allow us to serve an additional family -- this expansion will be available early summer, 2019.  Ninety five percent of all money raised goes to lowering mortgage and maintenance costs and towards purchasing additional properties to serve the community.  

Last year,  with the help of runners like you, we raised more than $20,000. Help us surpass this target by raising pledges and donations for your run and together we can Hit a Grand Slam Home Run for Housing in Haliburton County!  

Online registration closes August 3rd at 2:30PM.  

On-site registration is available on Saturday, August 3rd from 4:30PM - 7:00PM and on race-day, Sunday, August 4th from 7:15AM - 8:30AM at the River Cone in Minden.
