Grimsby Half Marathon, 10k & 3k Family Day Run – T-Shirt Cut Off This Sunday

The Tim Horton’s Grimsby Half Marathon, 10K and 3K in support of McNally House Hospice is scheduled for Family Day, Monday Feb 17, 2014.

This race is entering its 20th year and has proven to be a great tune up for the Around the Bay Road Race!

While we offer a distance for every runner we have also added some fun Family Day Activities for the young ones, including a jumpy castle, games, and magic. All will take place warm and indoors of course.

To help raise much needed dollars for McNally House Hospice we are going to offer a Electronics Recycling Program. There will be a recycle bin setup on race day for you to discard of old, unusable electronics.  For a complete list of items that we can collect please click here.

What a great way to kick off the Subaru of Hamilton Niagara Running Series.

The deadline to sign up and still receive your free technical t-shirt is midnight this Sunday, February 2nd, 2014.

Mark it on your calendar to avoid disappointment.

Confederation Park T-Shirt Cut off is Sunday night

Running has gone to the Dogs!  Be sure to join us on Saturday May 11th at the Confederation 5K where we are launching our first ever dog run/walk.

For all you traditionalists the 14th annual 5K and 1K will be run as usual on 2 legs but we have added a 4 legged component for all of you who train with your pet.  It’s really not fair that they only get to go on training runs, its time they get rewarded for their service.

The SPCA will be on hand and we encourage you all to pledge a runner, dog or both in order to raise funds for the great service they provide to the community.

Member’s of the Hamilton Police K9 unit will also be on hand.

RJ’s rolling smokehouse will once again be providing the best lunch in the race business free to all registered participants and there will be some snacks for your best friends as well.

Events will kick off with the 1K at 9:30 and all children 12 and under will receive a free t-shirt.  The 5K will go in 2 waves starting at 10:00 am.  Separate awards medals will be presented for each event and all the dogs will receive a bone shaped collar medal.

All 5K participants will recive a free technical t-shirt if you are registered before Sunday night at midnight.

Its something new, it’s going to be fun, I hope to see you all there.

March Update

Spring is just around the corner and there is a lot going on at the Subaru of Hamilton Running Series as we continue to prepare for this season of racing.

First of all I would like to wish all of you participating in the Around the Bay Road Race the best of luck this weekend.  Please drop by our booth on Friday and Saturday at Copps Coliseum to say hello and enter our draw for some Subaru of Hamilton Running Series goodies.

While you are in Hamilton this weekend be sure to visit our title sponsor Subaru of Hamilton for their huge 3-day tent sale, this  Thursday to Saturday.  It is the perfect time to check out the new line up of Subaru vehicles and combine your Running Series Rebate for a great deal on a new Subaru.  With every car sold at this event a donation will be made to McMaster Children’s Hospital.   Check out their website at:

Finally just a reminder that the t-shirt cut off for the Jordan 5k & 1K falls on this Sunday March 24th at midnight.  I am sure all of you who run the Around the Bay race may not be thinking of it on Sunday so register now to be sure you get a t-shirt.

Congratulations and thank you to all of you who came out to the Tim Hortons Grimsby Half Marathon, 10K and 3K.  What a perfect kick off to the 2013 Subaru of Hamilton Running Series.

The weather conditions weren’t ideal but they certainly could have been worse for a Sunday in February.  I would like to especially thank all the volunteers for freezing their butts of for us.  We couldn’t do it without them.

The next race is the Jordan 5K & 1K In support of Red Roof Retreat on April 6th.  Its another flat and fast course  I hope to see you there.
