Trail & Ale5/7K Run/Walk for Rayjon
We have made the decision that the 1st ever Trail & Ale will be virtual,
as current regulations won’t allow us to safely gather all at once. But this is NOT a Run/Walk conducted in cyberspace. You can run/walk in the great outdoors—independently, or with others who live in the same household or are in your bubble…in other words, anyone with whom you would otherwise feel safe and comfortable to walk or run.
We've put together a little video to explain how Trail & Ale will work virtually. Stay tuned... It’s going to be amazing!
We are all dreaming of a post-isolation pint...so get ready to celebrate finishing the event with a cold one from The Refined Fool microbrewery.
You can complete your Run/Walk anytime between and including Saturday, August 8 and August 22, on any route convenient to you. We’ve suggested one possible route on the Howard Watson Trail, but feel free to find an exciting route in your own neighbourhood. Choose 5k or 7k.
T-Shirts & Beer: For participants who have not yet picked up their T-shirt and Refined Fool post-isolation beer, we will be contacting you to arrange pickup or drop-off. (Note: We will do our best to make sure every participant gets a T-shirt prior to August 22nd. Due to the difficulty ordering correct sizes in advance, late registrations are not guaranteed a shirt).
We would love to see people in their T-shirts out walking or running. Please share your photos!
For out-of-towners: We can mail your T-shirt to you. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need your shirt mailed. Sorry, but we cannot mail the beer. If you have friends or family in Sarnia, they may be very happy to pick up your shirt for you and enjoy your beer! Alternatively, we can provide you with a coupon for in-store pickup at the Refined Fool in Sarnia. Maybe you’d like to share the goodness with a Sarnia friend?
If you wish to participate in the competitive aspect of the event, please time yourself. You will receive instructions later as to how you can submit your results. (Although we do have plenty of prizes, none of the prizes being awarded are based on competitive times, so submission of times is on the honour system.)
Prizes will be awarded for:
- Best finisher celebration
- Most interesting route
- Participant from farthest away
- Best Costume
- Best hat
- Best photo
- Best video
- Most fundraising for Rayjon
Funds raised will support families in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
