The race has established itself as the marquee 5k running event on Canada’s sporting calendar. Proudly supporting Diabetes Canada.
We are two individuals with a passion for running. It is through running that we have found love, happiness, and health and have gained valuable life experiences. In 2005 after having lost one parent to cancer on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) and having another parent who was battling diabetes, we decided to share our passion and experiences from running and start a race to raise money for diabetes and thus the St. Patrick’s Day 5k was born!
If we can change but one person’s life through running, then our race is a success. Running can be hard, running can hurt but the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward can make you healthier, happier, and more confident.
