Re: Hamilton Boxing Day Romp in the Park!!

Hi Ken:
Thank you for the great report and for coming out again this year. The 5 mile / 6 mile change was due to a mistake of the volunteers sending you up Longwood Ave. first. We will be applying to the City of Hamilton to run the race that way in 2015.

Re: A windy day in Hamilton, Ontario

Thank you for coming out again this year, and congratulations on another personal best. The Hamilton Harriers work hard to make it a good race experience. With the weather that came in after the race, I am glad it is not the December 27th 10 miler.

Nice to see you Alfie. It was a great day for a run. Watching the 400 kids in the 1km bunny hop is always the highlight of this event. The Burlington Runners always put on great events.
