Running in Northern Ontario - Look what I found!
Now as most of you know, this running sport we love can be a wee bit costly and with the average race weekend out of town running as much as $400.00 for a weekend for race entry, gas, meals, and hotel (- think I'm crazy? do the math, I think you'll be surprised!) I thought it was high time that I started checking out races close to home.
For some reason, I thought that it would be harder to find races and places to run in Northern Ontario but it was really just as simple as going our local run club websit and lo and behold, 15+ races ranging from 5Km to Full Marathons! All within 2 hours of my home, all $60 or less (for the distances I was looking at) and all between May and December.
So, I did what any penny-pinching part of a running duo would do......... I texted my running mate and told her how much money we were going to save and gave her the list of races to choose from!
Here's the list of races happening in the North in 2013 here is the Sudbury Rocks Running Club Website for a link to all the races listed below http://www.sudburyrocks.ca/events.htm
