Age division winners in 6k & 10k.

Almost 50 runners showed up to race in Bruce Mines on a beautiful fall day last Sunday.

The Run Around the Bay 6k/10k sponsored by The Shoe Fits was organized by Lexie Lajambe. Proceeds from the race went to the CASS Senior Girls Basketball team, which Lexie coaches, and also to support recreation activities in Bruce Mines.

Basketball players volunteered along the race route and at the water station keeping everyone hydrated and on course.

This is the 3rd year for the event, which brings out competitors of all ages from Thessalon, Bruce Mines, St. Joseph Island, and Sault Ste. Marie. Race highlights include a much faster top 10k time for 2019, with the top finisher 4 minutes faster than last year.

Major sponsor, The Shoe Fits, generously donated $50 gift certificates for the age division winners and other local businesses donated gear, gift cards, and baskets for draw prizes.
