Inspirational Steps

18 May 2014

is_5Victoria Day weekend saw the 2nd annual Inspirational Steps run/walk event take place, stretching across the GTA. 185 participants began the journey at Dixie Gurdwara’s Nishan Sahib and braved distances of 5km, 12km, 21.1km and 42.2km. It turned out to be a wonderful day, with perfect weather for the shorter distances and some showers for the marathon runners late in the day. It was fantastic to see many participants improve their times from last year, while many more challenged themselves to longer distances.

This year, 13 runners completed the marathon, one of whom was Fauja Singh’s coach Harmander Singh who completed his 84th marathon. Other celebrities included Minister of Sport Bal Gosal and Premier Kathleen Wynne who both participated in the 5km race.

Fauja Singh would be proud to see so many inspired individuals challenge and push themselves to new limits and heights, following an active and healthy lifestyle, and most importantly bringing together the community. Congratulations go out to all the participants and we hope to see you all next year and grow this event together.
