Message from the Executive Board

The County Marathon Committee is pleased to announce that our most popular event - our relay race will now to be referred to as the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation Team Challenge or 'the Hospital Foundation Team Challenge' - for short. Since its inception we have dedicated the County Marathon to raising awareness of the importance of our local hospital and feel that by renaming an event which draws as many as 800 runners each year we may be able to do more to further our efforts and the hard work of over 500 volunteers on race day. Part of the event will be an award for the team which raises the most money for the Foundation - will that be your team?
