Join us in a community near you for Heartland Tour 2018
Rides, walks, and activities for all.
Registration/participation is FREE and you get a free t-shirt.
This year the Heartland Tour event will be outside Membertou Sport and Wellness Center on Monday July 9, 2018
This event is the only one of it’s kind. We recognize the need to accommodate a variety of physical abilities whether it be cycling, dancing, running or walking. We understand that cycling long distances on road bikes is not for everyone, so we have designed an activity for everyone!
Free Registration Booths will be set up at 8:15am-11:00am outside to entrance of Membertou Sport Center.
Registration will be two separate booths manned by volunteers.(4)
Table #1 will be for the paper work.
