HAMILTON ROAD2HOPE MARATHON

It’s taken a bit over a week for things to settle down from the weekend! What a success.

First off, thank you. Thank you to everyone involved, from the runners and spectators, to the medical team and volunteers, charity partners, and race coordinators. Without the amazing people surrounding this event it just couldn't be done.

This time of year the weather can be unpredictable, however we had two beautiful days, especially for our Sunday runners. Hamilton was definitely showing off its fall colours!

If you have photos from the race weekend, or maybe a story of your own to share, we would love to see and hear them! Please send them to jordan@runnersden.com!
