There is a lot going on in the MARS running community right now.
The Huntsville Hoyas will send off 20 runners, parents and supporters to Sudbury this Friday for OFSAA XC Championships. Go Hoyas!
On Sunday November 3, MARS Masters Runners will tackle the Sunnybrook 8 Km XC event. Same day registration permitted. Contact Pierre if you need a ride. We will depart at 9:15 am and should be back around 5 pm. Daylights Savings is Saturday night so you can sleep in AND go to the race!
MARS is sending both young and old runners to the Athletics Ontario XC Championships November 17 just outside of London. Contact us for details or click here.
Registration for the MARS road trip to the Vermont City Marathon opens November 1 (Friday). If you would rather tackle the 1/2 Marathon, there is a Marathon relay and registration for that opens Feb. 1, 2014. Why not book your hotel now, as you can always cancel later. Burlington, Vermont is beautiful. Race details can be found here.
MARS is looking for ways to engage more runners. We will host our first “Run To The Pub” Thursday November 28 from 4:30-5:30 pm. Come for a run then a drink/food at the pub. We will meet in River Mill Park at 4:30 and head to the pub around 5:30pm. The Club Executive will meet for a half hour and everyone can mingle. If you have ideas for MARS, bring them with you or contact us.
Finally, tune up your head lamps and join us tomorrow morning at 6:30 am for the “Run For The Doug 5 Km Time Trial”. We will jog the 5 km course first then race it. Pack your excuses away for winter (it’s too cold, it’s too dark, it’s too early). See you there.
