There are activities for the entire family to enjoy including the kids’ activity zone, plus a free McDonald’s pancake breakfast. Steph Mackenzie of 97.1 The Point will entertain the crowd throughout the morning leading up to the awards for each age division ranging from 5-70+ for our competitive timed runners.
