SUDBURY, Ont. - The Laurentian Lady Vees Cross Country team will compete in the 32nd annual Ramsey Tour Road Race this Sunday. The 5k/half marathon will see the Laurentian and Nipissing teams running in the OUA-sanctioned event. The race is aimed to raise money for local post-secondary runners.

In the past 31 years this race has been held, it has provided over $100,000 in bursaries to local post-secondary runners. Everyone is welcome to enter. There is a $30 entry fee for the general public; children get in for $10. The first 200 participants will get a race t-shirt, while everyone can enjoy refreshments and door prizes.

The Lady Vees head coach Dick Moss is an advocate of the race and believes in its cause. "If you want to support Canadian athletes, here's a place to do it. The proceeds from this race have long helped a number of Laurentian athletes, most of whom combine part-time jobs, full-time academic programs and very tough training schedules. We also use these scholarships as a recruiting tool to attract top-notch runners."

The race will start at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday at the Laurentian University Track. For more information or to register please see
