Important info and dates:

Race location and course: The run starts on Colby Drive, in front of Pope John Church. The first part of the race takes you down a generous hill, past Colby Elementary and The Bible Chapel. The course levels out as you turn the corner by the "B" Streets. The hilly section of this race begins just after Bissett Lake. Now it's time to separate the contenders from the pretenders as the racers will climb the largest hill on Colby Drive. With a total elevation of 250 feet and just under a km, this part of the race should excite all. Runners will make their way past Cole Harbour Outdoor Pool and Tennis Complex and through the 4-way stop for the home stretch.
