5th ANNUAL CALEDON PIT RUN

AND OPEN HOUSE

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016

 

This year's event will be held on Saturday September 17th, 2016. Last year, we exceeded our goal of $25,000 and raised $26,500 for Bethell Hospice in Inglewood.  Our goal for 2016 is $30,000 for Caledon Central Public School.

Both Lafarge and Aecon are committed to building and supporting a caring and healthy Caledon community and 100% of the registration fees and sponsorship donations from the event will go directly to the school. Thank you to all the sponsors, runners, friends and volunteers who all contribute to the success of our Annual Caledon Pit Run and Open House. We hope to see you again this year!

As with previous years, the Caledon Pit Run/Walk takes place within the scenic 2nd Concession of our Caledon Pit, located southwest of Charleston Rd and Willoughby Rd in Caledon. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to experience a 5K or 1K cross-country run/walk through an active licensed site. New for 2016, we are certified for a 10k race course. We hope both new and previous runners will register for this double loop 10k course. During the event we will feature an open house with silent auction, a sponsor expo, guided bus tours, supervised kids' activities and face painting, Earth Rangers, and the very popular rock truck ride!
