Our Races 2018


The Guelph Lake 5k and 10k June 10th, are run on beautiful paved, rolling roads within the Conservation area.

The Summer's Night 5k, a flat and fast 5k, run at twilight, July 11th.  Goes through the Homewood grounds. 

 The Fergus 10k, August 12th, run on beautiful roads along the Grand River, last year produced some of the fastest results in a local race in a long time. 

The Falling Leaves cancelled this year due to construction in the Arboretum.


The Guelph Thanksgiving Day Races, October 8th will have five races, a 100m and 1k race for children, a one mile, a 3k, a 5k  and a 10k. This has in the past been both a big family event and has attracted some of the world's best runners.  Two of our winners have gone on to compete in the Olympics.

 We specialize in good well-run races, accurately measured and timed.  The courses are well marshaled and marked.  For testimonials click here.  

All of our races are friendly small local races.  You can pick up your race kit, or register for the race at the start line, (at least half an hour ahead of the start time).   Our sponsors are local businesses, our volunteers are mostly local runners, some of them Canada's best elite runners.  We try to keep things moving, so that you can pick up your race kit on race day, run the race, enjoy some race food, review the results all in the space of two to three hours and get on with your day.

We do not offer a free tshirt with each entry in order to keep costs down.  We will be offering a series t-shirt at cost . We do have a good collection of age group merchandise prizes    

The Guelph Athletics Society attempts to limit the environmental impact of our races.  See here for details
