Fewer Running Vancouver Sun Run This Weekend

Good luck to Colin Fewer (Bib #59) and other NLRunners at this Sunday's Vancouver Sun Run!

This is Canada's largest 10K road race with more than 37,000 participants.

Huffin' Puffin Route Update

Organizers continue to work with officials from the City of St.John's in an effort to secure a new route for the Huffin' Puffin Marathon. So far meetings have been very productive and encouraging, and the group will present to the Special Events Committee on May 13.

If everything works out we will enjoy a new course taking in Bowring Park, downtown St. John's, and Quidi Vidi Lake! If not the route will remain the same as in recent years.

In the meantime registration is now open so visit huffinpuffinmarathon.com to sign up for the full or half marathon, or the oh so popular marathon team relay.

Mundy Pond 5K Venue Change (Same Route!)

Due to the unexpected early closure of the Mews Center, organizers have moved race morning registration, bib pick-up, and post-race reception for the Mundy Pond 5K to St.Teresa's Parish Hall, 120 Mundy Pond Road.

There is no change to the race route ... course will still start and finish in front of the Mews Center.
