About Mercedes Benz Oakville
This race is always one of the highlights of the year. Oakville is a suburb of Toronto with a beautiful waterfront and a upper-class small town vibe.
The people of Oakville have always been known to be very friendly but this race can make people just a little bit competitive especially when you factor in the great prizes being given away.
The organizers are Mercedes Benz Oakville so you know the winner will surely leave in style. See below for prize details.
This race is also fun for the whole family. There will be a 1k Junior Jog for kids aged 6-10 and a 300m Toddler Trot for the 1-5 year olds who are “in it to win it”.
This race has been organized by Mercedes since 2009 and has only grown larger every year. This year you can expect anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 participants to be competing on a road type course for a whole heap of awards, prizes or just for fun.
This race showcases Oakville’s vibrant springtime waterfront and quaint downtown strip.
This race is 5k and 10k but asides from that is further subdivided into many categories so anyone from a first time runner or toddler to a seasoned vet can run and will still have a great time and will not feel like they are lagging behind.
Oh yes, and we forget to mention. The kind folks at Mercedes-Benz Oakville are going to be giving away a car!
Free 1 year lease on a 2016 Benz
That’s right, they will be giving away a one year lease to a brand new 2016 GLA 250 to one lucky finisher.
Remember that you don’t have to win the race to win the car. As long as you complete the race you will be entered to win the car and the winner will be chosen by random draw on April 24,2016.
This competition will be open to anyone who raised $100 or more. They will be automatically entered into the random draw and selected on the 24 of April, 2016. So get out there and start fundraising today!
The race will take place on April 24, 2016.
