Along with the colder temperatures come the shorter days and less daylight. This can mean that most runners will find themselves running in the dark at some point in their training week. Don’t assume cars can see you. Be sure you are wearing lots of reflective clothing and even better, lights. We have a great selection of reflective clothing, accessories and lights.
Check out our Nathan products like the LightBender and LightSpur.
The 2013 Anniversary 10k Run will take place Sunday, November 3rd at The Landings Golf Course. The new start time this year is 11 a.m. This race is organized and supported by the Kingston Road Runners Association in support of its KRRA charitable causes and the Gilda’s Club, Southeastern Ontario.
This final race in the KRRA Race Series often determines some of the overall and age group series winners. The course starts at The Landings Golf Club at the Kingston Airport and proceeds east on Front Road; north on Bayridge Drive; west on Acadia Drive through a subdivision and then returns south on Bayridge Drive; and Old Front Road and Front Road to the Lemoine Point parking lot before returning to The Landings.
Hey kids, we’ve added a race just for you. It’s a 1.5K race and it happens promptly at 10:30am, before the adult’s race. The price is only $5 per child up to 14 yrs. Kids aren’t eligible for shirts or medals but get a race ribbon and a cool certificate of achievement.
Race day registration and race package pick-up will begin at the Landings pro-shop at 9:30 a.m. Stick around after the race for post race refreshments, awards and great prize give-aways! Don’t feel up to racing a 10k? Why not volunteer?!
