2016 Firefighters 10 Mile Road Race

Rock 94 is proud to support the 2016 Firefighters 10 Mile Road Race, Monday May 23rd, 2016.

As of the 2016 race, it will have been 106 years since the inaugural running of the Ten Mile Road Race here at the head of the Great Lakes.
Take up the Ten Mile Challenge for 2016.
Be a part of the history.

What would the May long weekend be without the traditional running of the 10 Mile Road Race. This premier running event is steeped in history that dates back to the inaugural running in 1910.

In April of that year, the Fort William Daily Times-Journal announced that it would sponsor an annual road race with the purpose of promoting "healthy and clean sport at the head of the lakes". The race would follow a course of 10 miles and 52 yards through the streets of Fort William and Port Arthur, Ontario.

On race day the streets were lined with spectators along the entire route. They were not disappointed. The inaugural race was won by J.E. Edwards of Port Arthur in a time of 57 minutes flat, out-distancing the second place finisher by over three minutes.


Register now for the main race, the relay and to view the road course map visit 10mileroadrace.org
