The ROTARYFEST Miracle Mile Colour Blast
Saturday, July 16, 2016
10:35 a.m. just before the 95th Rotary Community Day Parade
The Miracle Mile Colour Blast is an amazing opportunity for participants to come out and have some fun, while exercising with others! The event will take place on July 18, 2015. The start time is set for 10:35 am at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre and will finish at the Essar Centre. This event takes place right before the Rotary Community Day Parade, so ten thousand people will be lined up along the parade route to cheer you on and see your team spirit! There will be refreshments at the end of the race and we ask participants to stick around for a group photo opportunity, along with a final colour blast!
This year, there will be two heats for the run:
The first heat will have a more competitive feel and will start at 10:35am. This heat is suggested for those participants interested in running the race at a faster pace, and perhaps timing themselves.
The second heat will offer a more family friendly feel and will start at 10:40am. This heat is suggested for those who will be running or walking the race at a more relaxed pace, and perhaps travelling in large groups.
Individuals as well as team members are encouraged to fundraise in order to help support Rotary youth charities, and get a chance to win two return Porter Airlines tickets, anywhere Porter flies, with a value up to $2,500*! (*must raise over $750 as an individual to qualify for a chance to win)
The ROTARYFEST Miracle Mile Colour Blast can be a terrific fundraiser for your team/group! We organize the event, all your team has to do is raise the pledges and come & have fun!
