I had the pleasure of measuring this certified fun, 5 km.(map below) which is basically, a flat, out and back route, starting at 10:15 a.m.…..nice to cheer each other while on either side of Wellington and, in keeping with the day, Race Director, Brian McLean, says, “ we always try to encourage our participants to wear green and come out and celebrate St. Patrick's Day while having a pint of Steam Whistle beer after your race.”
And it’s all for a terrific cause as the event raises funds for Achilles Canada, a non-rofit organization that provides people with various disabilities an opportunity to receive the physical, psychological and communal benefits of running.

We’ll drink to that !
