You will be seeing lots of IRONDames at the 22nd Annual Moon In June Road Race this Saturday evening in downtown, Burlington. The Road Race is a favorite for the IRONDames as it was the first team race we ran together in 2009 and has been used as a personal fundraising challenge for many IRONDames in the past.
The Moon In June Road Race is a family friendly night race in support of The Halton Trauma Centre. The Road Race offers a variety of distances from the 3rd Annual Meredith’s Kids 1k Fun Run to a 10k to accommodate every level of runner. The course is a flat, fast one loop 5K and 2 loop 10K through downtown Burlington. The route highlights the beautiful Burlington Waterfront as the sunsets and runners slip into the darkness of the cool, late spring night, eventually ending at Burlington City Hall.
At Kidsfest children are treated to fire trucks, bouncy castles, caricature artists, face painting, chalk drawing, mascots and tons of other activities, followed with the 3rd Annual running of Meredith’s Kids 1km Fun Run for children 10 years and older.
