Summer Night 5K

Your favourite summer 5k is back! Same great venue, just a new name. We are excited to be hosting the Summer Night 5k again this year with Delilah's. (Formerly Barking Frog) Come run our 5k , or 2k for beginners and kids and enjoy friends on the patio with our hosts. Always a summer favourite! Enjoy a beer(for those of age) and burger post race, courtesy of our hosts Delilah's.



All Pledges from this event will be going to Bereaved Families SWO. 

Bereaved Families of Ontario Southwest Region (BFO-SW) is a non-profit, mutual aid organization that originally started in 1984 to help support families who experienced the death of a child.

Today, we continue to offer free support and programs for those who have experienced the death of a child, along with support for individuals who have experienced other death-related losses as well.

We provide a safe place where members can talk about their loss, share their story,  and express their grief. Through the self-help process, participants know they are not alone, and may feel hopeful as they see how others have coped and learn about grief as a normal response to loss. 

Pledge Incentives

Please help the our charity partner do more by collecting pledges and handing them in on race day. The top 3 pledge collectors will be given prizes donated by our generous sponsors.
