The main event, the 10 kilometer run will see participants plying their way past historic stone houses and churches in Cape Vincents center, along the route that flanks the picturesque St. Lawrence River to the much photographed Tibbetts Point Lighthouse, which is the 5K point. There the runners turn back towards downtown. All events start and finish at the Cape Vincent Recreation Park on South James Street, Cape Vincent.
The events are organized by the Cape Vincent Chamber of Commerce. Executive Director, Shelley Higgins, says the course is flat and fast, and the sunshine and the fresh air coming off the lake create an ideal place for the event.
The Chamber is also organizing a 5K run and walk on the course which follows the same route turning back mid-way to Tibbetts Point.
A permanent trophy is maintained in Cape Vincent with the names of the female and male winners of the 5K and 10K runs. Ribbons will be awarded to first, second and third place male and female finishers in various age categories.
Pre-registration is $20.00 US and Canadian. Race day is $25.00. T-shirts, commemorating the Event will be given to the first 100 participants registered. Ribbons will also be awarded to the top three finishers in the 1K Fun Run.
