THE SUMMER CLASSIC

No t-shirt, no bag of flyers at bib pick-up, no medal to keep in an old shoe box. Just the important stuff: well-marked courses, in-race support, a professional safety team, chip timing and bananas at the finish line! The Summer Classic is part of our series of 6 low cost running races in 2017:

Welcome to our Summer Classic Road Race!
 
Sold out to 500 runners three years in a row! This father's day race in Carp is fast becoming a classic! Join us to run 5, 10 ($15) or 21.1km ($20) on beautiful rolling country roads, starting and finishing with a loop of the famous Carp Agricultural Society Fairgrounds. The route is fast, with only one significant hill.
