The 25th Valley Harvest Marathon
Raymond Field, Acadia University, Wolfville
On Thanksgiving Weekend the Wolfville area welcomes several thousand runners for the Valley Harvest Marathon (VHM). The event is certainly a draw for many runners, eager for the event along with all the harvest-time activities on the go in the surrounding area.
Each year the VHM supports various organizations in return for their volunteer time dedicated to putting on the event. Last year, those organizations included the Shriners, the Evangeline Middle School Breakfast Program, the Central Kings Bank, the Canadian Ski Patrol, the Kingsport Wellness and Fitness Society, the Wolfville Mudcreek Rotary, and the Acadia SMILE Program.
In addition to the Ultra Marathon, Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, and 5km races, a popular free Kids Run is offered for children up to age 14.
