More than 700 take part in Run to endMS

CORNWALL – Around 720 runners took to the city’s waterfront trail for the 17th annual Run to endMS.

The sold out Saturday event, starting at St. Lawrence College, saw participants run the marathon, half marathon, 10 kilometer and 5 kilometer distances.

Marathoners started from Morrisburg, running to the college.

Scott Henry of Ottawa was the first to cross the finish line in the marathon event with a time of 2:51:17.

The fundraiser for the Cornwall chapter of the MS Society of Canada also raised around $30,000.

While the conditions were perfect for running – cool and overcast – runners and spectators had to contend with rain for at least part of the day.
