Held Canada Day Weekend: June 27 – July 1, 2015
11th Annual Englishtown Mussel Fest 5k & 1K run on June 27 followed by the St Ann’s Bike Ride in the afternoon.
The Dan MacDonald 10k and 3k Road Race were held on July 1 in Baddeck again. The goal was to get more kids in both races this year.
Englishtown was a success in runners for both 5k and 1k and the 44k bike ride. Purchased shirts for all runs and hats which you will see photos. All participants were very complimentary of the events. If we did not obtain the financial assistance from Naturally Active Victoria County, the county (Councilors Merrill MacInnis & Bruce Morrison) we would not make a profit. I had very few shirts left over.
Its about changing sedentary life styles. As always Vince thanks for your help. I couldn’t do it without you.
Proceeds of the event goes to support the Baddeck Runners Club and the Englishtown Community Hall Committee. My mailing address is P.O. Box 60, Englishtown, NS, B0C 1H0
