7th Annual Fog Trot – Children’s Wish Foundation

Congrats to all the runners who ran in the 7th annual Fog Trot this morning in Arnold’s Cove. True to the name the fog was out in style but the temps were warm and humid … Huge Hats-off to the organizing committee  and all the volunteers for making this run possible again this year. It is definitely one of my personal favorites and it always turns out to be a really fun family event. Thanks to the Children’s Wish Foundation and hopefully today we all made some wishes come true.

The race results will be posted on the Fog Trot Website. To see results CLICK HERE


Terry Fox Run – 2013

Thanks to everyone who participated and donated to the Terry Fox Run this year and thanks to the organizers and volunteers for a job well done. A special thanks to Martha Sweeting. Without her commitment and dedication this local Terry Fox Run would not be possible.
Below is a short message from Martha and some pictures from the event
It looks like the Clarenville site for the Terry Fox Run raised $6036 this year – more than double what… we raised last year! I would like to thank Lee Bennett and Lyn Gorman for helping to organize this event. I would also like to thank: Fiona van der Linde for providing the water, Shirley Hansford for the oranges & bananas, Meridian Engineering for the TimBits, Michelle Bennett, Regina Bailey, and Bill Bailey for Mashalling, Keith Barrington and Craig Vokey for helping with the kids run, Maxine Trottier for reading from her book, ‘Terry Fox, A Story of Hope’ and Krista Lake for helping at the Registration Desk. Riverside Elementary School loaned us the Gym at no charge. Tanya Stone Bennett was in charge of the key. I would also like to thank the Heritage Huskies who came all the way from Lethbridge to support our event and Meridian Engineering Inc. who has been a great supporter of our event from the very beginning. Last, but not least, thank you to everyone who participated and/or donated to our event. We hope to make it bigger and better next year!

Terry Fox Run 2013 – Clarenville, NL







Again this year the Random Runners Club is proudly supporting the Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work to fund innovative and progressive cancer research programs.
The Random Runners Club is asking for your support by joining our team to help fundraise for this very worthwhile cause.
You can join our team by clicking the below link which will take you to our Terry Fox Team page.
The Terry Fox Run will take place on September 15, 2013 at Riverside Elementary School in Shoal Harbour. Registration is at 9:30 am and the route will be either a 1km around the track or a 3km cross country route. Following the run there will be a special book reading by author Maxine Trotter at 10:00am “Terry Fox: A Story of Hope”.
The obvious benefit and purpose of this fundraiser is to raise awareness of cancer research by supporting the Terry Fox Foundation. However, beyond the fundraising efforts, we reflect on Terry and how absolutely committed he was to make a change in the world, one step at a time. The passion and determination that Terry had in achieving his goal for the good of others, is truly inspirational and each of us can benefit in our own lives by reflecting on his accomplishments. Participating in the Terry Fox Run is like joining Terry on one of his days during the 1980 Marathon of Hope. It is all about putting aside our own needs to benefit others who are fighting much bigger battles.
Please Join Team Random Runners and let’s make a difference one small step at a time. Special thanks to Martha Sweeting for being the team captain.

7th Annual Fog Trot Road Race 10K – Arnold’s Cove, NL

The 7th Annual Fog Trot 10k will take on September 14, 2013, 10:30am at Tricentia Academy in Arnolds Cove. Registration starts at 9:00am and is $10.00 per person. Prizes will include $100 for the top male and female finishers.

The “Fog Trot Road Race” is an annual 10 km event that is staged every year in the scenic town of Arnold’s Cove. Since its conception in the fall of 2007 the event has grown into a high calibre road race that has consistently attracted runners, and walkers, from all parts of eastern Newfoundland. Not only, is this a road race, rather it is a run with a cause, as all proceeds from the annual event become pledged donations to various charities such as Daffodil House in St. John’s and The Children’s Wish Foundation. As a result, both the organizers and the Town of Arnold’s Cove are very proud of this annual event and look forward to seeing an increased number of runners at this year’s race.
