2014 KRRA Race Series Event #2
KRRA - Twosome Run 5k

This race is organized and supported by the Kingston Road Runners Association in support of KRRA charitable causes as well as the Limestone Learning Foundation.

Come celebrate Groundhog Day with us! In this unique Winter event, runners compete as individuals for KRRA series points, but can also compete as male-female teams for "twosome" overall and combined age group placings.

The course takes runners along city streets through the Queen's University campus and past many of the historic "Old Stones" of Kingston. Post race refreshments and awards take place in the warmth of the school gymnasium.
