Run Dufferin is a non-profit organization whose goal is to support and promote health, fitness, community, and especially.... running in and around Dufferin County.

This is also the home of our running group, the Dufferin Tornadoes. Hidden away from the bustle of big cities and off the commuter corridors lies the quiet community of Grand Valley.

Originating in the highlands of Dufferin County, the Grand River, is the largest river within Ontario's borders, and snakes its 300 kilometer journey to Lake Erie.

On Friday May 31, 1985, 25 years ago, a deadly tornado cut through Grand Valley, tearing straight down Amaranth Street and heading east. (Some photos here)

Running on the same path as that tornado, we will follow a scenic 10 kilometer route crossing the Grand River 4 times via 3 different bridges.

The Toronto Grey and Bruce Railway line paralleled the River, operating from 1870 till 1984. The Upper Grand Trailway Association now maintains this trail which provides over a kilometer of our route.

Current specifics are: Entry fee $30 ($35 on race day) for 10 K run. Children's event - 1 K run is free.

Register on-line at OR in Orangeville at Access Fitness (Lakeview) and Harmony Health OR in Fergus at Grand River Running.

Course will be timed, well-marked and marshalled. Minimum of 2 water stations. Awards will be given to male and female in 10-year increments. Race shirt for all 10 K runners. BBQ after. Join us for a fun family event!
