On the farthest Eastern edge of Ontario, right on the other side of the Ottawa river from Grenville QC, you’ll find an up and coming community called Hawkesbury. It is situated in one of the most picturesque spots boasting magnificent views of the Ottawa river, the Laurentians (amazing in the fall when the leaves change) and beautifully maintained agricultural scenes all begging for someone to run by and admire.

With an eye on the future and a mind on health, many people from around the area including Vankleek Hill, L’Orignal, Alexandria, Grenville, Grenville Sur La Rouge and other little communities dotting the Ottawa valley, seem to take community and fitness seriously. A little running group started at the end of October 2017 with only the group organizer, his 7 year old son along with two of his friends in attendance. The group is now approaching 200 members and each Sunday Fun Run has grown to have 20 to 40 people participating at each meet up. People from all over the area love to run and socialize.

The Sunday Morning Fun Runs are focused on meeting, having a coffee and to share in great conversations with interesting people. They then go for a run. The distance isn’t really measured to the meter, but everyone seems to find their way back for another coffee and maybe, a piece of cake. The group meets at the Centre Culturel Chenail Cultural Centre, a local cultural center that promotes visual arts and offers a surprisingly delicious assortment of coffees, teas and yummy snacks.
