Today, the Around the Bay 30K road race announced that in-person racing will return, for its 127th edition, in March of 2022.
The in-person 30K race in Hamilton, ON, will take place on Sunday, March 27, 2022. There will also be a virtual 2K, 5K, 10K and 15K offered for all who cannot make it to Hamilton or are not ready to return to in-person racing. The virtual race submission period runs from March 1, 2022, to March 26, 2022, and the 2022 virtual times will be included in the official race results.
“It’s been quite the journey but it looks like there is a light at the end of this tunnel, and we are looking forward to welcoming runners back to the historic Around the Bay race in March 2022,” said organizers in the press release.
Although this edition of the race will be different than the 126-editions before, race organizers will try to provide a memorable Around the Bay experience filled with history and tradition for runners.
The course and field size of the in-person race still has to be determined, depending on the public health parameters in the new year. Registrants can expect an announcement on the logistics of the event closer to race day.
