SOCIALS are free training opportunities that help you to start or simply give you company for your walk or run.  So, plan to join us to get in shape or stay in shape in the following communities: Yarmouth, Sheet HarbourDartmouth and Summerside.  Sheet Harbour started in January meeting at the Community Center at 42 Sprott Lane on Thursdays at 6pm through race day. From Saturday, April 6th to race day, in Yarmouth they’ll meet at 10am at Pubnico Point Windfarm. Locally, beginning April 11th in Dartmouth we’ll meet Thursdays at 6pm at 45 Graham’s Grove, Dartmouth. And finally, Thursday, April 18th to race day we will meet Thursdays at 6pm from 370 Water Street, Summerside, Prince Edward Island.

Socials are usually done in one hour. You do not have to be registered for the race to join us at a SOCIAL. Come out, give us a try and see if you like what you find.
