Are you ready to run this city?

Registration for the third annual Race for Health is now open, held this year on Sunday, September 11. Heats begin at 8 a.m.

Take a foot tour of our beautiful city by registering in one of six race options all while raising funds to purchase cardiac equipment for our community hospital, Bluewater Health.

Explore our community on one of many courses that will take you on a scenic city tour through the very streets we live on.

For full information on the event, including course routes, registration, fundraising info, and more, visit our Race Roster page.

Up for the challenge? Let's do this.

You've decided you want to run this city. Here are six steps to get you to race day.

1. Choose your challenge

Choose one of five race options. We've got something for everyone, regardless of fitness level, including:

  • 5K walk/run
  • 10K walk/run
  • Kid's fun run

2. Make it official

Register online via our Race Roster partner site. Registration is $50 and includes a shirt and participation medal.

Note: Registration fee increases to $60 after August 1st. Kids run free and do not require registration.

3. Start training

Now that you've registered, it's time to start preparing for the big day.

Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Document your training journey and share it with us on social media using #RaceforHealth. Why do you run this city? Tell us for your chance to be featured on our Race for Health social media.

4. Get philanthropic

Show your community pride and fundraise in style!

Our online fundraising tool is conveniently built right into your Race Roster account. This allows you to recruit friends and family members easily via social networks to donate to and support the cause!

Donations received help purchase cardiac care equipment for Bluewater Health.

5. Grab your gear

Race day is just around the corner. Pick up your race kit from the Foundation office on the date specified by the event coordinator.

Your race kit includes your t-shirt and race bib (and maybe some surprises!)

Don't lose your bib - it includes a microchip that will automatically track and upload your time to the results tent and Race Roster website.

6. Run this city

After months of training, it's finally here! It's cool to keep a competitive edge, but remember, regardless of race time, you've won by simply taking this journey with us and supporting your local hospital. 

Now, do a happy dance.
