Annual Huron Shore Run Takes Place

Southampton | by John Divinski  

The Foundation gets 70% and the rest is split between the other three groups.

Brianna Cavan of Georgian Bluffs kept the title in the female division, finishing the half-marathon in 1:28:27.

Cavan says running is a getaway for her saying she turns off her brain and puts her energy into legs and enjoys the ride.

Cody Shewfelt of Southampton, who finished 3rd last year in the male division, topped the half marathoners this year with a time of 1:22::09.

The big winners in the event are the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation; the Southampton and Port Elgin Rotary Clubs and the Saugeen Track and Field Club.

Event co-organizer John Van Bastelaar says they've raised between $40,000 and $50,000 net proceeds to be given away.

The Foundation gets 70% and the rest is split between the other three groups.

Van Bastelaar says they had over 800 participants in the various categories but the one that's grown the most is the kids Fun Run category, where this year 120 kids were registered.

The Huron Shore Run for the first time was International and Global in scope.

Some of those taking part were from Paris, France; Aberdeen, Scotland; San Francisco, California and the Northwest Territories in Canada.
