Glen Tay Block Race

The Glen Tay Block Race is held on the last Thursday in August.
We are sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion, Perth-Upon-Tay Branch 244.

Registration opens April 1st (no fooling!)

We are looking forward to hosting our classic little race on

Last year’s race results are posted!
Check the Records page, too!
Three records fell last year!

Incredibly, the women’s course record, set by Helen Cooper in 1982, was broken by all three of the top women. Kimberly Krezonoski finished 3rd in 53:23. Tori Bouck came 2nd in 53:12. And Michelle Krezonoski crossed the line 1st in 52:55. Congratulations to all three…what an amazing accomplishment!
