Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 6-Hour Race (2020 Cancelled)
A scenic 1.1 km paved loop near Lake Ontario and near the walls of Fort Frederick
About the event
CANCELLED IN 2020 , SORRY
For many years now, we have been inviting runners to join us for our annual 6-hour race in Kingston. We are proud to hold it once again upon the grounds of the Royal Military College, on the shore of Lake Ontario. This is a beautiful short loop (1.1 km) near a tiny historical fort. We always strive to welcome and support the runners in a very helpful fashion. A water/food station is available every loop, so you never have to worry about being caught without nourishment. We encourage all participants to transcend their past accomplishments, although the mood at the race can be characterized as more friendly than competitive. We frequently get comments from the runners about how much they appreciate the help that our counters are able to provide.
