“We want to showcase the beautiful and connected Greenway trail system that has been created with the support of so many donors throughout the region,” said Claire Wales, president of the foundation, before the event.

“Additionally, road users will experience some of the great routes of the County’s Active Transportation System and will include stops at some of our wonderful conservation areas.

Waves of a maximum of 10 runners ensured that physical distancing was maintained. All the riders started from Mettawas Park in Kingsville.
