The cross-country running season is underway for local elementary and high school student-athletes. This week's edition of The Glengarry News includes results from the recent Turkey Trot.

We will have results from the Iona Academy meet in The News next week.

Today, Oct. 12, there's a run in Winchester (Grade 7 through 12), and on Oct. 17, Winchester will be the site of the SD&G high school championships.

GDHS intermediate (Grade 7 & 8) runners participated in an Oct. 10 event at Gray's Creek, with three Gaels capturing first-place honours. See next week's edition of The News for details. Here's a photo of the team, courtesy of Shana Thomas Lajoie.

Take advantage of early-registration for the Raisin River Footrace

sean Jul 10, 2018 - 1:12pm

The 40th Annual Great Raisin River Footrace is just over a month away, scheduled for Sunday, August 12, in Williamstown.

Early registration for the 11 km and 5 km races, at a discounted rate, is available until July 14, online at raceroster.com/16814

New this year, to mark the event's long tenure, the first 300 participants will receive a commemorative Ed Whitlock medal. 

As well, the footrace convenors Sheila and Wendell Lafave have organized a Saturday evening clinic, where Roger Robinson, who's been described as the "world's best running historian," will talk about Whitlock. He will also draw from his latest book. This session will take place in the ballroom of the Sir John Johnson Manor House, in Williamstown.

The Sunday morning runs (starting at 8:30 a.m.) begin and finish on the grounds of the Manor House. Both the 5 km and 11 km course are out and back along a scenic, flat country road, along the south side of the Raisin River.

A kids fun race is also scheduled. This is a 150-metre event for children under 10 years of age (who are not running the 5 km race). Children will receive a ribbon and a treat. No pre-registration is required.

Entry fees for the 11 km and 5 km events, respectively, are $25 and $20 until July 15, $30 and $25 from July 15 through August 9, and $35 and $30 on race day.

The Lafaves have announced, after 11 years at the helm, this will be their final time organizing the Footrace. New convenors have yet to be confirmed.
