ShamWALK & RUN


Sunday March 17, 2019

Once again Geneva Centre is teaming up with Achilles Canada to bring you the ShamWalk. New this year, you can choose between a 5km or 10km heat. There is also a 1km run for kids ages 12 and under, beginning at 9:45 before the main race.

Gather your friends and family on this first Spring Sunday morning for a walk or run through the heart of downtown. Following the race, enjoy a wee bit of Irish merriment, a hot bowl of Irish chili, and an ice-cold Steam Whistle pilsner. Come decked out in your St. Patrick’s Day flare or your GCA swag. Either way, we promise you a fun time!!

Last year Geneva Centre for Autism was the largest charity team at the Achilles Run/Walk and we're hoping to take that title again this year. Join us on Sunday, March 17th for the ShamWalk and Run.

Here’s just a few of the great perks you’ll receive as part of our team:

  • • A discounted charity registration price of $45 for the 5km race or $60 for the 10km race.

  • • Raise $350 and we will reimburse your entry fee.

  • • A free post-race pint of Steam Whistle beer and a hot bowl of Irish chili

  • • A festive St. Patty’s Day celebration at the finish line with great live music and entertainment

  • • An event racing shirt

  • Convenience! Start and finish at the same location, with easy access to parking, TTC and bag check

  • • A great day with your friends and family, and a heartwarming feeling knowing you’ve made a difference in the lives of children, youth and adults with autism living in Ontario


No need to worry if you’re not an early riser! The event starts at 10:15am at Steam Whistle Brewery

The race has sold out for the last ten years, so don’t wait - REGISTER TODAY!
