Run For Your Life
I’m probably dating myself but I remember the TV show Run for your Life with Ben Gazzara that aired in the mid-sixties. During September and October folks in Caledon have lots of opportunity to run….for health, fun, and charity.
On September 11th 310 Running held their Fall Five event in picturesque Albion Hills. It was a beautiful, crisp, sunny day; a terrific day for runners of all ages. My husband and I walked the route before the race got underway and the trail was peaceful and serene. Stan Cameron, Peel Disctrict School Board Trustee and I sounded the horn for the first race before taking off ourselves for the 9/11 service in Caledon East.
Never fear, if you missed that great run you’ll have a couple of other opportunities. On September 25th Caledon East will be the site of the 4th annual C3/Kinetico Running Festival. This run offers 1 mile, 5 km and 10 km courses and is raising funds and food donations for Caledon Community Services. You can register online at www.onlineregistrations.ca/caledonhills
Then on October 30th just in time for Halloween is Bolton Rotary’s Haunted Hill Run/Walk. After a starting location at Humberview High School this route will take you past Laurel Hill Cemetary and along the Humber River through Bolton Mill Park. Your choice of 5 km or 10 km and funds go to support local youth initiatives. Register online at www.rotaryhauntedhill.com
So whether you run or walk….it’s active living and for a good cause…..I think Ben Gazzara would approve
