Shore to Shore Road Race...a 69 year tradition.
This 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 25 people to register for the race, by June 1, will get FREE a t-shirt commemorating the race.
In the RUNNING Division, there are prizes for the top male/female in each age category 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
In the WALKING Division, there are prizes for the top TWO males and the top TWO females.
There is a cap of 25 entrants in the walking division and a 2 hour, 30 minute time limit.
As we approach the summer of 2022 this will be updated to reflect the current Public Health guidelines.
Here is what we did in 2021:
We are so thankful to have received permission from our local community to have this event. In an effort to keep everyone in our community safe the following protocols will be in place.
ALL Volunteers will be masked.
Participants will have staggered starts in groups of 25. You will be pre-assigned to your group based upon anticipated completion time with the fastest runners first.
ALL Participants must be masked at the marshalling area and start line. Remove your mask as the race starts and carry it with you.
At water stations, the water will be on the table for participants to take themselves. It will not be handed to you. Participants may wish to carry their own water.
At the finish line you will be asked to move through quickly and not to gather in large groups. Unfortunately, you cannot remain to cheer on the rest of the field.
