SNRS releases race dates for 2013

The Subaru Niagara Running Series will return in 2013.

The Subaru Niagara Running Series will be back in 2013 with at least seven events and hopes of more to come.

The SNRS race dates have been included in Niagara Runner’s Races in Niagara directory.

Organizers of the popular running series released the 2013 schedule in a e-newsletter emailed earlier this week. Dates are tentative, organizers said, but the schedule includes most of the favourite runs of years past. The 2013 series kicks of Feb. 24 with the return of the Grimsby half marathon, cancelled in 2012. Jerry’s Peachbud, the Run for the Grapes and the Jordan 5k are also on the schedule.

“We certainly know that things weren’t perfect this year without Jerry but I can promise we will take all that we have learned and be better prepared for another exciting season of running in 2013,” said Lyle Harris, race director, in the e-newsletter. Harris’ Race Kits Event Service partnered with In Stride Productions last year to produce the running events after Jerry Friesen, the race director who built the series, passed away in 2011.

“We hope to add a few more events and grow the existing ones,” he added.

Instride’s website hasn’t been updated with the new schedule yet but Harris said registration will open in December.

  1. Which half marathons have you enjoyed the most? I’m down in Buffalo, but this year we found so many fun races in Canada (Toronto Marathon, the Chocolate Run, and Ironman 70.3 Muskoka). Starting to plan the calendar for next year!

    1. Love the Run for the Grapes Half. I’ve done it twice, now and it is flat and fast. Plus, the Niagara Wine Festival is an amazing event taking place a few blocks away from the finish line. Click the link to read my 2012 Run for the Grapes race report:
      The Niagara Falls Internation Marathon (registration not yet open) also offers a half and there is the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon. Check out my Races in Niagara directory; I will continue to update it as race dates are confirmed and registration details posted.
