About Run / Walk / Skate / Bike

Since 1987 the “Boys’ Home Run” has been a feature of Bright’s Grove every Father’s Day. It has grown to include a 10k run, a 5k run, a 5k walk, a 7k rollerblade, and 7k, 20k and 40k bicycle rides.  It also includes a sausage and pancake breakfast, and on-site activities for children 3 – 10 accompanied by a parent.

People come from far and near to participate. Some come to get a good time on our flat fast route, some come to test their abilities, and some come for a special time with friends and family. All proceeds stay local for the boys of Huron House.

The 20k and 40k bike routes were created in response to suggestions from many people.  They are touring routes NOT A RACE. Cyclists must always give way to runners, follow all traffic rules and must wear a helmet.

The 40k riders will start just ahead of 20k riders, with faster riders going first.

The entire route is on paved roads, with just a bit of hard packed stones in Mike Weir Park before the gate to Brigden Road.
