Dayna Pidhoresky, the winner of Around the Bay is set to race in London, Ontario, Canada on August 21st, 2011. Pidhoresky is the first of elites to sign up for the Rock the Road 10K. She will undoubtedly be vying for a shot at the first place prize of $1,000. Pidhoresky of Tecumseh, Ontario has sprung to the top of the Canadian road race rankings by posting a time of 1:13:15 at the 2010 Detroit Free Press International Half Marathon. We look forward to welcoming Dayna Pidhoresky to London.
“This race is a great addition to the Southwestern Ontario road race schedule. Sometimes it is difficult to track down 10K races that have prize money. It’s nice when that can draw in some competition which often yields fast times and personal bests.” – Dayna Pidhoresky
Rock the Road 10K is a 10-kilometer running road race that will start and finish at Masonville Place in London, Ontario. There will be live bands and cheerleaders along this flat and fast course, which was designed to give runners a personal best time. Our Mission is to provide a quality road race for all ages and abilities that will generate funds to be given to The Sunshine Foundation. Our Vision is to create an annual event that serves as a substantial fundraiser for The Sunshine Foundation while fostering an enthusiasm for the sport of running. The start/finish line as well as the course will resemble a festival type atmosphere with bands, cheerleaders, refreshments, massage, yoga, etc.
