Annual Candy Can Run

After enjoying the Santa Claus Parade and enjoying a relaxing evening overlooking Niagara Falls at the Marriott on the Falls, get warmed up and head out in the 7th Annual CYTEC Candy Cane Lane 5K Race and Fun Run, presented by RBC Royal Bank.

The Candy Can Lane Run, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, was created to promote outdoor physical activity and healthy lifestyles while raising food and cash donations for the Project SHARE Christmas Basket program.

Runners in the competitive 5K race complete two circuits of a 2.5-kilometre route, with prizes of $250 for the top male and female finishers and medals for the top three finishers in 13 age categories. But there is also a 2.5 kilometre Fun Run that allows friends and families to participate in a non-competitive fashion. All are encouraged to take a lap using creative ways like costumes or team themes to make the run fun. Fun runners can jog, walk, skip, sled of ski if they so desire, with the ultimate goal to enjoy some outdoor physical activity.
