Featured in iRun Magazine’s “16 unique races in Canada”"Sometimes it seems like the only people who win a race prize finish 1, 2 or 3. In the Great Canadian Goat Run 5K & 10K road race in Brackley Beach, PE special prizes go to the Oldest Goat, to the runners who return with a rubber chicken caught on the course, and gift certificates are presented to anyone running their very first race or a personal best time. Every runner receives a T-Shirt with a special Goat Haiku written by the Company Goats and, of course, there is lots of ‘kidding’ around." --From "16 unique races in Canada" iRun Magazine, June 2012
