On the shores of Lake Ontario, the sun rises on a calm, brisk fall morning. A certain energy falls over the streets of Oakville, where runners and walkers take their place in the Start Line chute. They are waiting to put their summer training to the test at the 13th annual Nutrience Oakville Half Marathon on October 5-6, 2019. The horn goes off and participants set off on their 21.1K journey through the streets of beautiful Oakville.
This fall must-run event will take participants through the most scenic areas of Oakville, with a brand-new route that begins and ends at Shell Park. The new route presents runners with the opportunity for new personal bests, with sights including Coronation Park, the Lake Ontario waterfront and Bronte Harbour. When surveyed, 90% of participants said they will run the event again, and we look forward to welcoming them back this year.
The Runner’s Expo is a mandatory stop for all participants to pick up their official race t-shirt, runner’s bib and special Swag Bag, featuring great products from sponsors and vendors. Last year, over 15 vendors took part in the expo, featuring a variety of local healthy and active living businesses.
The 2019 Race Weekend will also feature the Mutt Strutt 2K. Come out on Saturday, October 5 and bring your furry friend! The Mutt Strutt presents runners and walkers with a fun opportunity to race with your pet. Your dog will be rewarded with a bandanna and dog tag at the completion of this 2K event.
Participants of all ages and abilities are invited to experience the Nutrience Oakville Half Marathon. Choose from five different events including the Nutrience Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, Timbits 2K and Mutt Strutt 2K. Register today at oakvillehalfmarathon.com.
