Terry Fox Hometown Run

It is a day of celebrating Terry’s legacy and helping to keep alive his dream of finding a cure for cancer. The Terry Fox Hometown Run is a non-competitive event where people get together as individuals, families, and groups to raise money for cancer research in Terry’s name.

Come run, walk, skateboard, ride your bike, rollerblade, walk on your hands or just about anything else during the event on this wheelchair accessible route! The idea is to have FUN while raising funds for cancer research.

We have a 3km, 5km, 7km and 10km distances. All routes are out and back along the same corridor. The route will be marked and there will be traffic control at the major intersections. Participants are asked to keep to the right at all times and to watch for oncoming traffic.

Sunday, September 15, 2019
Registration begins at 8:00 am – Run begins at 10:00 am
