Shore to Shore Road Race...a 67 year tradition.
Monday, August 5, 2019
Wiarton Rotary, after a long absence, will once again assume the organization of the Shore To Shore Road Race in 2019. The race was originally named the Bluewater Marathon and it started from Cape Croker in 1947. The start was then moved to Oliphant and finished in Wiarton in 1953. The race begins at 8am in Oliphant and the 13km route is a classic course with rolling hills and a fast downhill finish.
The first 100 people to register for the race, by July 15, will get free a t-shirt commemorating the race.
