Lakefield Twilight 5km Run/Walk

by Jennie MacKenzie

Mother Nature cooperated and gave us a beautiful Saturday evening for this year’s running of the Lakefield Twilight 5km. There were over 200 entrants this year who enjoyed the course which ran along both sides of the river in Lakefield and through the Lakefield Campground. Entrants also enjoyed homemade chili complements of the organizing committee, chocolate milk from Kawartha Dairy and water from Lakefield Foodland. Music was provided by Jim Mulder and warm-up drills by Your Body You. Many thanks to all the volunteers who came out to man road barricades to keep the competitors safe and Arteri Emergency Response Training for providing first-aid services.

Awards were provided compliments of Lakefield Pantry and many draw prizes from Tim Horton’s, Runner’s Life and Hunter Street Tavern.
