The 40th Annual Great Raisin River Footrace is just over a month away, scheduled for Sunday, August 12, in Williamstown.
Early registration for the 11 km and 5 km races, at a discounted rate, is available until July 14, online at raceroster.com/16814
New this year, to mark the event's long tenure, the first 300 participants will receive a commemorative Ed Whitlock medal.
As well, the footrace convenors Sheila and Wendell Lafave have organized a Saturday evening clinic, where Roger Robinson, who's been described as the "world's best running historian," will talk about Whitlock. He will also draw from his latest book. This session will take place in the ballroom of the Sir John Johnson Manor House, in Williamstown.
The Sunday morning runs (starting at 8:30 a.m.) begin and finish on the grounds of the Manor House. Both the 5 km and 11 km course are out and back along a scenic, flat country road, along the south side of the Raisin River.
A kids fun race is also scheduled. This is a 150-metre event for children under 10 years of age (who are not running the 5 km race). Children will receive a ribbon and a treat. No pre-registration is required.
Entry fees for the 11 km and 5 km events, respectively, are $25 and $20 until July 15, $30 and $25 from July 15 through August 9, and $35 and $30 on race day.
The Lafaves have announced, after 11 years at the helm, this will be their final time organizing the Footrace. New convenors have yet to be confirmed.
On July 21 at the beach in Charlottenburgh Park, Serving Kindness, a volleyball tournament, will be held.
Colton Gallant and his committee have been co-ordinating this event with Lissa Deslandes, of the Raisin River Conservation Authority, aiming for a successful inaugural tourney. Proceeds will be divided up and donated to different families in the area who are currently experiencing financial hardship.
The cost per team is $200 (6-12 players), and this is also a co-ed tournament, with each team required to have a female on the court at all times. As of this posting, eight teams have signed up.
DJ Poswah (Eric Laszewski, 28, Cornwall) has kindly agreed to spin tunes throughout the day.
Teams and individuals are also encouraged to book a campsite, stay the night, and support Charlottenburg Park.
The event logo was created by Colton’s older sister, Caitlyn Gallant, who also came up with the names.
For more information, visit the Facebook event page or call Colton Gallant at 613-360-8800.
