CHCM Timex 10 km Road Race

The organizers of the CHCM 10m road race have decided to switch dates for their 2014 events.

The CHCM race was originally scheduled for early June but due to road construction projects and road closures on the race course, the race is now rescheduled for June 28.

The Mariners Athletics Club is now confirming that the Annual CHCM Timex 10 km Road Race will be scheduled for Saturday, June 28, 2014.  Event organizers will revert back to the first Saturday in June in 2015.
