Rotary Huron Shore Run (RHSR) organizers are once again re-imagining their annual event and, with the future unknown, have created a Spring Training virtual challenge.

"We want you to stay active, and help us continue to raise much needed funds for the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation," read a February 2 media release.

If future COVID-19 restrictions permit, the event will return to its pre-pandemic normal, sub-events included, and will take place on June 4, 2022. Organizers are expected to make a decision by April 1, 2022.

"If it is considered safe, registrations will be accepted online after April 1," organizers said.

In the meantime, participants are able to participate in a virtual Spring Training, with online registration by donation now open.


Participants can Run, Roll, Ride your bike or Walk the distance of the Lake Huron shoreline, from Sarnia to Tobermory, a total of 325 kilometres, or choose a portion of the journey. Anyone who raises $200 or more in pledges will be given a promo code that will allow them to register for the run of their choice for the June 4 event free of charge.

"Complete the distance in your own neighbourhood on a daily or weekly basis," read the release. "Record your distances online and watch it increase as you pursue your goal."

Distances will be recorded until June 4, 2022.

Participants can set their distance goal and also bring family and friends onboard to make a team and combine individual distances.

Registration is by donation and charitable receipts will be issued.

"When you register please tell us what motivates you to participate in the Huron Shore Run," read the release. "We would love to hear your story as to why you support our Hospital Foundation and Rotary."
