Fun Run – Saturday, September 30, 2017

To all Ex-Cadets:

You may notice in the September 4th edition of e-Veritas that a “Fun Run” around Fort Henry is planned for ex-cadets (and others interested in such things) during the afternoon of Saturday, September 30, http://everitas.rmcclub.ca/message-board-includes-updates-fun-run-ex-cadet-soccer-game-for-both-on-reunion-saturday/

The Run on Ex-Cadet Weekend began several years ago when a group ex-cadets who were entering the Old Brigade decided to mark the occasion with a repeat of the Cadet Wing Harriers run for old times’ sake.

But the run is now more than that – it is an opportunity for cadets from all classes to join together for an enjoyable run bringing back memories of years ago. It also includes the present-day College Harriers teams – both male and female – who will join us (and kindly slow down a bit so as not to embarrass us too much).

It is not a race – times will not be recorded and no prizes will be awarded – although if individuals or groups wish to challenge themselves, they are welcome to do so.

Afterwards, there will be a casual get-together for all participants at a nearby Mess to mix and talk about the run and the college. It’s a great way for ex-cadets to chat with present-day cadets in a relaxed atmosphere. (Warning – bring money – tradition also requires that we ex-cadets do the buying).

We run the old Cadet Wing Harriers route, which circumnavigates Fort Henry. The run starts and ends at the flagpole on the parade square, and the distance is a bit under 5 km (with a BIG hill in the middle, of course). The plan is to start at 1500 hours, but please be there by 1440 hours for a short briefing and a group photograph. The run schedule fits in with the other sports activities going on and gives us enough time afterwards for a drink together before you head off for the evening events.

All ex-cadets are welcome, as are all present-day cadets and members of participants’ families. If you want to do the run, please advise me at the address below so that we can keep a handle on the numbers to expect. The more the merrier!


Just before the start of the 2015 run
