On Saturday, October 15th, 14 ambitious people went out to Gray’s Creek Conservation Area to participate in a 5k Spooky Fall Trail Run hosted by the Cornwall Multisport Club (CMC). People of all ages attended this annual event, with the youngest, Jack Daye, being just 10 years old.
CMC hosts seven or eight events a year. Their members from across SDG participate in a range of multisport activities, including triathlons, duathlons, and ultramarathons (50-100k events).
“2022 was hard for memberships,” said CMC President, Peter Moody, “In 2023 we’re hoping to get back all the members who didn’t register in 2022 because of all the restrictions, insecurities, or unknowns about this year. We only reopened in about April of this year after the restrictions started to relax.”
Participants of the Spooky Fall Trail Run were encouraged to come dressed in running-friendly costumes and three prizes were given out after the race: closest predicted time, fastest time, and best dressed.
The CMC’s next event is their Fall Road Race 2022, a 5k or 10k race taking place on October 29th. The race will start at Gray’s Creek following the multi-use path heading west along the St. Lawrence River.
Registration for the Fall Road Race is open to members and non-members. The club is also always looking for volunteers to help. Questions can be sent to Peter Moody at firstname.lastname@example.org.
