Just a week away - hope your training has gone well. We are almost ready to have you come to the County. Below are a few images for you to consider.

1) Our finisher ribbons this year won't include a medal. Instead you will find a weather resistant decal in a plastic sleeve that can either be left there or attached to a vehicle as proof you have run our races. Most of us have finishing medals for a variety of races - they just hang on door knobs etc collecting dust. This year you will have something that will collect dust but at least it will be on your car bumper where everyone can see you are a competitor!

2) Logistics have been a curse this year. Ordering shirts at our usual cutoff time proved impossible. Instead our supplier suggested we offer fanny packs instead. Of comparable cost to us and hopefully with greater value to you our fanny packs should see more use than the 35 shirts you have tucked away from other events.

3) Finally we are so indebted to our volunteers - they have created this event and deliver it year in year out. Look for people wearing white ball caps (as shown but with marathon writing). They know stuff. Ask them.

See you very soon! The weather is looking promising so there is still time to register.

Cheers from the Marathon Committee

Dear Runners;

Hoping your training is going well as we are just over 30 days from our races.

At this time we are so pleased to announce that Prince Edward County's dairy farmers will be meeting you at the finish line with the recharge of chocolate milk you need after a bit of a run across the County. We have valued their involvement for years now - please thank them at the finish line!

We are also pleased to welcome back finish line expertise from Sandy Musson and her team. They will also be at our registration on Saturday October 1st in Picton with an incredible array of items you may just need on Sunday. Plan on visiting them then or at C O N T A C T | Tri & Run Coaching (triandrunsports.com)

Also at the finish line in the arena look for Robin Everhardus and her team from Trillium College Kingston Campus - Trillium College offering massage services and Sam Shepherd from Picton Physio Sam Shepherd, M.Sc. PT | Picton Physiotherapy

Our race is coming together - will we see you at the starting lines October 2nd?

Cheers

Mark and Lynne

Dear Runners;

At long last we have our banner up on the Main Street in Picton. We have construction on the street so we may be using our alternate finish line, however this banner will be up when you come to the County October 2nd.

Also we have mapped our 50 Km Ultra. It runs through arguably the most scenic part of the Sandbanks Park. The route is a double back route so if you missed these scenes running the first 3.9 KM you will see them on the second 3.9 KM
