Race Information

The Around the Bay Road Race holds the title of oldest race in North America, having being first run in 1894! Of course it carries on a rich tradition and has been won by some of the best runners in the world. 

It is also a charity event (since 2005.) All funds go to St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton for their patient care and research. 

Join us for the 30k, 5k and relay by yourself or with a team (friends, family, corporate, etc.)
