by Doug Harvey
Reach the Beach 2017

August 11, 2017 - Reach the Beach is an annual road running event that got started in 2007. This year marks their 10th anniversary of holding these popular 5k and 2.5k run/walk races on the streets of Port Stanley. The course starts and finishes on Edith Cavell Blvd in front of GT's on the Beach, where the three main race events are featured. The first is a kids dash for small children for approximately 200 meters, the 2.5k and 5k for all age groups, start by heading East to William, North for one block, then West on Sydenham to George Street. For the 5k, the challenge is to go up that killer hill on George Street. This year over 300 entered and 253 completed the course. For more information go to Reach The Beach Website.

The Reach the Beach event is a fundraiser with all the money raised going into the Elgin County EAT 2 LEARN school lunch program.

The EAT 2 LEARN Partnership was formed in 2002 with a purpose of working together with schools, parents and local communities to help them understand, accept, support and deliver sustainable, unique Student Nutrition Programs. In working toward this vision, EAT 2 LEARN has dedicated itself to providing students in Elgin and St. Thomas access to and knowledge of healthy food choices. At all times, a consistent message of availability, universality and acceptance is promoted.

Complete race results are available here.
