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.
