what makes this event different?

The Barrie Half Marathon, 10k, 5km and Kids Run was created to help support local charities by providing a fun event where people come together for a cause.  This event is planned with charities as the beneficiaries.  All participants are encouraged to fund-raise or donate to local charities.  With out the help of the community these charities would not exist. Charities provide the volunteers to help make this event a success.

Participants can set up their own fundraising page to support a charity.
