Only one month to prepare for the runs & bike ride. On the Saturday,June 27 there is both a 5k and a 1k run registration starting at 08:30. Pre-register to guarantee a t-shirt. No age limit on the 1k run. The runs start at 09:30 and 10:30. The bike ride around St Ann's starts at noon. For those young riders there is an option to ride only as far as the Barrachois Bridge and back (16k) compared to the 44k around the harbour. This is the third year for people to attempt the Victoria County Fitness Challenge. To qualify one must run a road race at each event and do a bike ride at the Mussel Fest. There are special awards for those who finish all three events.
VeloCB riders will be participating in the bike ride again. It is not a race just a ride. Helmets must be worn by all bike riders. Young riders should be accompanied by parents.
The fees are as follows:
10k Mussel Fest- $15
1k Mussel Fest- $10
Bike Ride Mussel Fest- $10
3k & 10k July 1,Baddeck- $15
If one participates in all three there is a reduced rate of $25 for all.
I am seeking helpers for both races. My son usually helps with the Mussel Fest runs but has to work this year. Offers would be received with great enthusiasm.
