Oct 6 Run/Walk on behalf of the Animals.

OCTOBER 6, 2019

Register by September 25th to ensure your spot!

All Together Now, let’s run and walk for the animals!

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 before the event.

Participants must be off the road by 3:30 p.m.

Start near the animals and then come back to where they await your return! The full 5 km course goes from the farm 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. And enjoy the company of Wilbur, Pokey, Charlie, Winston, George and Ringo, and all the others who have found a safe haven at Penny Lane!

Thank You!
