Running the anchor leg of the Around the Bay road race on a 3 person relay team including HCF Board member Graham Browne. Our HCF team is Running in support of St. Joe’s Hospital. …a beautiful but cold day…thankfully I get to bring it home. Unfortunately, my section includes the treacherous Valley Inn hill, which is always character building.
As a veteran of many Around the Bays, I can’t get over how much the event has grown. In my early days we would trudge along with a few hundred runners and very few spectators. Today, over 11,000 die hards will complete the 30k with thousands of spectators and supporters lining the route. A testament to the great work or the organizing committee over many decades has created something that all Hamiltonians can be proud of.
