Join us for the 13TH edition of this fall charity run

Run 12 broke fundraising and attendance records and we are hoping to top $48,000 in 2019. Since 2007 the run has been organised 100% by volunteers with all proceeds being directed to helping youth achieve their full potential through sports and education. All proceeds go to the incredible Streetfront program. Run a challenging 10km course, a stroller and kid friendly 5km and the Kids Fun race. We truly have something for everyone. Bring a friend or build a team for our Team Challenge.

Youth Can Run Program

In keeping with SHLF’s vision and mission to support youth,we are pleased to continue the Youth Can Run Program. We offer FREE REGISTRATION to any and all youth that would like to participate, but that may not have the means, families included. Please contact the race director at for the coupon code – no questions asked. Available for youth registrants under 19 years of age. This code is also valid for any family/team registrant to the age of 19 that wants to run.



Fundraising is not required to participate but is encouraged and appreciated. As our keystone annual event, we rely on the Run to raise enough funds to support Streetfront Alternative  to achieve their goals.

Since 2009, SHLF has been able to provide Streetfront with an operating budget that has allowed them to spend 35 school days a year doing outdoor adventures and helping hundreds of at-risk youth finish marathons.

Please consider starting a fundraising page as part of your registration.

Run donations and fundraising pages are made via the Strachan Hartley Legacy Fund at Tides Canada Foundation. Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation Fund at Tides Canada supports qualified donees. All gifts to the Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation Fund at Tides Canada Foundation are subject to the requirements of the Income Tax Act.
