Congratulations to all Rocks!! and friends who took part in Hamilton's Around the Bay Roadrace this year.

Hello Vince, From my perspective - others please chime in, I don’t think anyone listened to your wise advice to start slow and negative split the back half of the course … front half of course was warm, most of us over dressed and were ditching layers, toques, gloves etc. first 10-12km had a tail wind which meant fast feet on totally bare pavement which felt incredible, 21km onward the rolling hills hit a lot of us as winds picked up a bit, legs started feeling heavy but we all pushed through to finish strong.

Head winds & hills for days is how it's done! I am so proud to have run this event for a 4th year (3rd time in person). A huge thank you to our entire crew from the Sudbury Rocks Running Club for all of your support, encouragement and training with us leading up to this event. It was absolutely incredible having so many friends from our run club out there crushing the course today!!! You guys are amazing!!! A special thank you to Tricia Yoga for always calming my nerves and for the push at the end , And a huge thank you to all of the volunteers for keeping us hydrated. Thank you to the spectators for cheering us on! (Especially Aislyn Schortemeyer for the cheer on at 21k) and thank you to the Police officers for keeping us safe out there and cheering us on in the process!

Around the Bay was awesome! The report from Shelley was accurate. Sudbury did very well with some strong finishers. Once again I went out too fast and paid the price on the second half. Josh finished with a great time of 2:08. Jay finished with not much time dedicated to training so it was quite an accomplishment. I did the Hammer and just ran my last virtual segment the 15kms this evening. Happy to be part of a great group of athletes. It was great to see Xavier and his performance was incredible. I’m motivated by him to try an ultra.

Hamilton’s Around the Bay Road Race is the oldest on the continent, first run in 1894, three years before the Boston Marathon. Rich in tradition, it has been won by the best from around the world, including Boston Marathon winners and Olympic gold medallists. Become part of the continuing tradition by running this challenging course around Hamilton’s natural harbour!
