Do it for yourself: for your mind, body, soul. Do it for the community.
The Mount Albert Sports Day 5km Run/Walk is almost here – June 1, 2013. It is in its eleventh year.
An exciting feature of this year’s race is that “we are introducing technical t-shirts for the first time and the timing system is the same system used in Boston and Paris at those marathons!” notes Race Director Jen Mark (Dynamic Living). Also, many sponsors have stepped up this year with more money. Exciting prizes can be won. Proceeds from the race go towards Mount Albert (part of East Gwillimbury)’s parks and facilities.
Personal fitness trainer Annette Papa remarks, “Run (or walk) because it makes you feel free, because you love it. When this is the case it feels like less of a chore and more of a pleasure, and you’re more likely to actually do it.”
Participating in the Mount Albert Sports Day 5km can be exhilarating. Held amid the festivities of the Mount Albert Sports Day Fair, it’s always fun! A sponsor named Carole commented about her experience last year,”[ We] all agreed that the atmosphere was so fun and that everyone was watching out for everyone else and having a good time and everyone was mixing in, little kids, kids, families, and runners. In summary, [we] loved the community spirit in a country atmosphere. [We] want everyone in the team to know what a great experience [we] had!!” (Testimonials, Mount Albert Sports Day 5km)
