This Week – Nov. 13

Great conditions at Terra Cotta doing the Egg Nog Jog course. A good turnout – 20 Benders. We enjoyed the 10.8K Egg Nog Jog route and the tail gate and treats afterwards. We’re going to do this run again soon, in preparation for the Race in December. In Vegas, hope to hear soon about Jackie, Yasmin and Belinda’s trip from the Instagram posts it looks like it was a blast.  Tom has found a 5 k race you may be interested in: Tom saw it at the gym he?

This Week – Nov. 6th

Congratulations to the Hamilton and New York Runners! Hope you ran well in New York Shana, looking forward to your stories. And Hamilton…..brutal!

Guess what, it’s SOLD OUT. We do have 18 Benders registered. Way to go! We can all still enjoy the event, either as Runners or Cheering? Read more

Run For the Cure – 2017

Run For The Cure was this past Sunday, a nation wide event with 56 cities participating raising funds and awareness for breast cancer. Since being diagnosed and overcoming breast cancer in 2009 / 2010 Michelle has participated in the Run For The Cure every year being joined with an ever increasing group of fellow Benders.

Neon Nights and Blue Mountains

The traveling party known as The Brampton Benders hit the Night Nation Run at Woodbine racetrack on Saturday night to throw down a quick 5k before partying it up. Unfortunately from the reports of those who participated the crowd was more interested in partying and less so in the running portion.
