At 8am on October 4th, some of our own Century21 Lanthorn teammates were getting ready to get their exercise for the year while participating in The 6th Annual County Marathon. This 42.2 km marathon is a Prince Edward County scenic tour for the tough, leaving from Wellington and continuing along Loyalist Parkway into Bloomfield, then heading south past West Lake, through the Sandbanks Provincial Park, past East Lake and into Picton, finishing in-front of the Crystal Palace. Our very own Young family team (Jason, Kevin and Sandy), our Steve Sensenstein, Jason's brother Jamie and Jamie's wife, Aimee all took part in the annual event.
Aimee got the relay team off to a great start and then passed off to Jamie, followed by Jason, Kevin and Steve finally crossing the finish line with the whole team at his side! Coming in 6th over 54 teams, the Century21 RoadRunners really stayed ahead of the pack with a time of 3.34.57! Congratulations team!!!!
At the junction of County Road's 12 and 18, Sandy was getting set for her 10am start time as she lined up for the Half Marathon. Sandy single handedly completed the 21.1 kms with an outstanding time of 2.40.58! Way to go Sandy!!!
Supporting our local community, The County Marathon's chosen charities for 2009 were the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation (PECMH Foundation) and Lakeshore Track Association. The PECMH Foundation was founded on July 23, 1985 to raise donations and to fund capital equipment, buildings and/or renovations of the PECMH in order to improve the health care given to our in/outpatients. The Lakeshore Track Association Resurfacing Project is working to restore the only asphalt track in Prince Edward County to ensure quality and safety for residents, athletes and schools who use the track.
On behalf of Century21 Lanthorn, I would like to thank Jason, Kevin, Sandy, Jamie, Aimee and Steve for their participation in The 6th Annual County Marathon and we look forward to The 7th Annual County Marathon!
