Lace up and Run the Great Lakes for ARCH and Sault Athletics

Run The Great Lakes

Celebrating 20 years is no small feat! For two decades, runners have hit the pavement in support of local charities, raising tens of thousands of dollars.

Raising funds for ARCH Hospice and Sault Athletics, the twentieth edition of Run the Great Lakes is taking place on Sunday, June 10th at the Delta Hotel in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. Veteran athletes and newbie runners are invited to run, jog, or walk the riverside course. Over three hundred runners participated last year in the run!

“I’m not a runner, but I wanted to challenge myself. I’d never run a 5K before but always wanted to so I finally decided to go for it. I was so proud of myself and had such a good time. I met some great people and did something I always wanted to do – one more thing on my bucket list done!” – 2017 RTGL Participant.

If you’ve always wanted to try running a 5K, or even 10K, we challenge you to join our Great Bucket List Challenge – ARCH has put together a running group to keep you motivated and help you reach your goal! The Great Bucket List Challenge is an awesome way to live your dreams, all while supporting ARCH Hospice and inspiring others! To learn more, click here.

Along with the 5K and 10K loops, the Run Committee is excited to announce the return of the Kids Fun Run. Young people of all ages are invited to participate in a 1K or 2K run, regardless of skill level. If you are interested in registering your child for the run, click here.
