 Canfest Road Race 

While most of you were still sleeping 24 energetic and enthusiastic people lined up at the lake end of Port Stanley's west pier at 8:00 a.m. to participate in the Canfest Road Race.

Sponsored and organized by Sport in Port, the race featured a 6K course and a 27K course. Now, the 27K course is for serious long distance runners, not the stuff for a novice challenge. However, there are a number of local running enthusiasts in Port Stanley and the winner of the 6K will get the "Stanley Cup" (sorry, this one is not for hockey). 27K runners winners will receive special Canada Day medals. Both courses go along Carlow Road and then up Lake Line. The 6K has a turn around point on Lake Line but the 27K follows a route that tracks down Scotch Line before making its way back to Port Stanley.

"We had 50 runners last year, said organizer Eric Salin, "but it was cooler weather, which makes it easier for running." It is all in the spirit of fun and fitness and to encourage the rest of us to get up off the couch and get out there - it's good for your health!
