The annual Hawk Run is back this summer, and this year it has a new format.

“Wanting to amp up the fun and creativity in this 5K walk or run, we’ve re-named this event the Wet & Wildlife Hawk Run,” explains Danielle Breault Stuebing, ERCA’s Director of Community Outreach Services. “Throughout the beautiful natural course, racers will run through misting stations, sprinklers, slip and slides and could even be targeted by a water-sniper.”

The event will take place on Sunday, August 24th at Holiday Beach Conservation Area in Amherstburg

“Holiday Beach has been ranked by Audubon Magazine as the third best location in all of North America, and number one in Canada, for hawk watching,” reports Danielle Breault Stuebing, Director of Community Outreach Services. “Funds raised through this very fun event will help support visitor services and protect and enhance habitat at this important migration location.”

The early-bird registration is $30 per person and includes a free t-shirt, park entry and a post-race beach party until May 31. If you are a WRACE member, you are entitled to a $2 discount. Participants with pledges over $50 will have their entrance fee waived.

The deadline for pre-registration is on Friday, August 22nd by 12noon.

Funds raised will be used to support habitat restoration and improve visitor facilities at the park.
