Additional information:

The Joe Kelly Memorial Run is PGGR’s year-end event to honour a dear friend and mentor to many in the running community. 

Joe lost his life while running a race in Australia in 2013.  Every October, the club hosts a run and social gathering at the Caledonia Nordic Ski Centre to remember him and collect funds for The Right to Play, an organization close to Joe’s heart.

The Event

PGRR members lead participants on 30-minute, one-hour, and two-hour trail and road routes, taking advantage of the fall colours and amazing trail system at Otway.

The start times are staggered, so that all runners finish at the Otway Nordic Ski Centre at 12pm.  In the past, we have all gathered for a pizza feast – we’re hoping that will be a possibility this year, as well.
