2017 Run For Your Life 5k & Mile Results and Photos

On Saturday, the 30th of September, we had another great Run For Your Life Event. With over hundred participants, mostly 5k runners, we saw our very own club president pull off the win on a cool, beautiful morning. On behalf of Striders and Riders, I would like to thank Presbyterian and SGH for their immense efforts in this event's logistics and community engagement that got so many people out.

Below are the photos and race results.

Until next year,
