BLOOMFIELD – Runners are encouraged to attend the third annual Kent Building Supplies Run scheduled for this Saturday at the Kent Store in Bloomfield.
“We’re not only encouraging runners to attend this event but we are also encouraging those that have been impacted by breast cancer to come out and show their support,” said Randy Allain, one of the event’s co-ordinators. “I lost my mother to Breast Cancer and through our family’s participation in the Run for the Cure we hope that we can assist in eliminating this disease through our fundraising efforts.”
Registration begins at 8:15 a.m. with the run starting at 9 a.m. The seven-km looped course will see participants leave the Kent Store parking lot running along Route 145 through Mill River East, turning left onto the Gard Road, then turning left onto Highway 2 and heading back to the Kent parking lot to the finish line.
The course was designed with safety in mind as there will be no need for participants to cross any roads.
A water station will be set up at the midway point and refreshments and prizes will be provided at the end of the run.
Registration is $10 per participant with all proceeds going to help fight breast cancer.
The event is being organized by Jean’s Dream Team who once again will be raising funds for their participation in the CIBC Run for the Cure.
There will also be a donation box set up for those wishing to make a donation without doing the run.
For the first time the run will be a points race for members of the PEI Roadrunners Club.
“I have been in contact with a lot of runners and they heard it was a great course so they are going to come out and participant this year,” said Allain.
