WINDSOR, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 11, 2014) - RunningFlat announces Windsor Ontario's only Half Marathon as a primer to Mothers' Day is almost sold out with only 500 spots left. May 4th in Walkerville is the race day.
Le Chocolat will let participants indulge in chocolate, enjoy the fresh air, and window shop, with the ultimate reward being the complimentary 3L box/bag of Wine that looks like a Purse along with a Chocolate inspired finishers medal. There are 5 races you can register for, the 5K Run or Walk, the 10K Run or Walk and the 21K Half Marathon. All Participants get the wine purse and all finishers get the medal.
Why chocolate and racing? As race founder and race director Chris Uszynski said with a smile, "Le Chocolat is a Mothers' Day-inspired run that celebrates what our runners have asked for: a scenic course along the Detroit River, firemen, chocolate, and of course, a 3L wine purse." Pelee Island Winery produces the 'Pelee Purse' in Red and White vintages and are in limited production. The Wine Purse is given to all registrants at Race Kit Pickup and they must be 19 years of age or older to receive them.
The run takes place in the picturesque neighbourhood of Walkerville, allowing participants views of the beautiful Detroit River and the trendy neighbourhood of Walkerville. "Having Walkerville as a backdrop is great. Chocolate, Firemen, Wine, beautiful course? Can you say Happy Mother's Day," said Uszynski.
The Walkerville Business Improvement Association is excited to be involved in the event. "Having the run begin and end in the heart of our beautiful and historic business district is both an honour and an opportunity. We are certain the participants and guests of this run will enjoy what Walkerville has to offer," said Joan Charette, coordinator of the Walkerville Business Improvement Association. "Some businesses are also planning special promotions exclusive to this event," added Charette.
