Oct 6 Run/Walk on behalf of the Animals.

OCTOBER 6, 2019

Online registration is now closed for this event. You can still register in person at the Sanctuary up until 1.30 pm.

Note: Participation in or attendance at any of our events in any capacity, whether held on the property or held elsewhere, is at your own risk. You are solely responsible for ensuring your own safety and the safety of your children.

By running and walking together in this event we all can do so much to help more at risk animals find refuge. Run for Charlie, the calf saved from a terrible fate at the very last moment. For Nikita, who was destined for the horse meat trade. For Wilbur and Pokey, our two beautiful father and son farm pigs. And for all those who have yet to find their way to us in the future.

The race fees collected for this event go directly for the care of the residents at Penny Lane Farm Sanctuary. Your efforts directly contribute to keeping them safe and happy!

The event takes place rain or shine.

Walk/Run begins at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday October 6, 2019. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to then to be ready to start at 1:30. You may park on Du Lac Road between the Sanctuary and Duquette Road. Walk up one of the 2 farm lanes to the barn where participants will gather to register in person before the event.

Note: the race takes place solely on Du Lac Road itself which is a gravel road, though paved as you near the village of St. Pascal. No part of the course is on the farm property itself. The road will be closed to traffic for the duration of the race. Participants must be off the road by 3:30 p.m.

The full 5 km course starts on Du Lac Road near the entrance to the farm, and continues to the intersection of St.Pascal Road and Du Lac Road (where the school is located) in Saint-Pascal-Baylon and back to the farm. Shorter distance turnaround points will be marked for 1k, 2k, 3k, and 4k. Vehicle traffic will be diverted away from that part of Du Lac Road.

Every participant is a winner in the eyes of the animals who directly benefit from this event, so after the race, catch your breath and celebrate with a vegan BBQ at the farm near the animals. Thank you!
