RunningFlat and Pelee Island Winery team up again to offer the most exclusive running experience in the world—an island run through one of Canada’s oldest grape growing regions making this Half Marathon on Pelee Island…Canada’s most Southern.
RunningFlat has announced the 5th edition of this amazing race. On June 3th, 2017, runners will have the opportunity to run Canada’s southernmost half marathon on Pelee Island Winery Half Marathon.
The 13.1-mile (21 km) course will run around the island, starting near the Vin Villa Miniature and finishing in the Pelee Island Winery. A scenic route around one of Canada’s oldest grape growing regions with picturesque views of Lake Erie, pristine Carolinian nature reserves, and acres of vineyards.
“Pelee Island is a gem in Lake Erie that attracts runners from all over the world. It is a truly remote destination run filling the island with runners and tourists”, says Chris Uszynski, race director. The event is only limited to approximately 350 runners only and sells out in a couple days. Registration opens for public sale today. Registration is in Canadian funds so American Runners save over 30% on exchange. This is the largest event on the Island every year bringing over 800 tourists on an open weekend before the summer rush.
Runners and their families can schedule a weekend away on the island and arrive via ferry, private plane, or private boat. Accommodations available include renting a cottage, staying at a Bed and Breakfast, or camping.
“This Half Marathon has been called the best half ever by past participants because the finish line is in the middle of the Pelee Island Winery where you enter the best after run party luncheon in running, with a wine tasting and huge catered luncheon and live band,” states Uszynski.
Registration is open. Runners can get more information on their website.
