The first Easter Seals event for the year, was held on Friday. The annual PEI Road Runners Race was run just prior to the beginning of the parade.  This event was organized by Rob MacKenzie (Kwik Kopy) and saw 110 runners run. The race winner ran in 14 minutes and 43 seconds for a new Course record.

A big "thank you" to Rotary volunteers; Lorne Moase who served as money collector and overseer of registration operations assisted by volunteer Matthew Reid. Course Marshals were Edna Reid, John Scales, Jim Travers, President Paul, and Martin Ruben kept the runners on route.
