If you like running, you have plenty of opportunity on Prince Edward Island. The government website devotes a section to running. There are trails everywhere. The best trail, or course is the Confederation Trail. It offers 350 kilometres dedicated to runners, walkers and cyclists. In the winter, it is a way for snowmobilers to get around.
Mid October is the PEI Marathon. Sure it is not as popular as the Boston Marathon but it is a great way to get in shape, train, and experience the fall beauty of PEI. This year, it will be October 14-16.
The PEI Roadrunners club has the mission of promoting running and a healthy life style. If you are an avid runner you should check out their schedules events all over the Island.
My favourite run (actually walk for me) was September 18 2005 when we crossed the Confederation Bridge on the 25th Anniversary of the Terry Fox Run. It was done again in 2010 for the 30th anniversary. The CBC news article still exists in cyberspace. See below some of my pictures from 2005.
Join me tomorrow to see what “S” will bring – so many choices I still have not decided.
