In less than 24 hours hours Frederick and the Run for Youth team will be running into Hamilton and Frederick will have completed his 21 day marathon of 650km!
BUT, he is not finished yet, Frederick will be running his last 10km this Saturday, November 5th in the Hamilton Marathon-Road2Hope. You can join him for 1km, 5km or 10km by registering online at https://raceroster.com/events/2016/5901/hamilton-marathon-road2hope/register?ref=event-right-sidebar .
To pick up your race kit if you are already registered, you can do so in person at Wild Waterworks Park at Confederation Park on Friday, Nov. 4 from 1-6pm, or on Saturday, Nov. 5 before your race (opens at 8am). If you are picking up on Saturday morning, come about 1-2 hours early so you don’t get stuck in a line up and miss your start time.
Frederick and the team have caught their second wind and are anticipating a strong finish into Hamilton despite the soreness Frederick is feeling as he shared with The Hamilton Spectator’s, Mark McNeil in the following article, http://m.thespec.com/news-story/6944399-running-for-youth-at-risk .
