39th Bert Corkum 5-Mile Road Race

The 39th Bert Corkum Memorial 5 Mile Road Race was a great success with the largest attendance since 1981. Forty-three people from across the province and as far away as Vancouver, Comox, Toronto, Washington D.C. and New Brunswick were in the line up on Saturday, August 16, 2003 to run one of Nova Scotia's oldest road races. The fairly challenging course begins at the Community Centre grounds, runs along the Centre Road to Frank's Shell, taking all left turns as it winds down the First South Road, along Puffycup Cove and over the hills back to Lunenburg.

Supporting the runners were the R.C.M.P., the Lunenburg Fire Department, the water crew organized by Glenna Jenkins and spotters from the local triathlon group. Race director Steve Saunders and his wife Beverly awarded trophies,prizes and draws at the post race reception. Tim Cowan of Comox B.C. was given a special gift for being the participant from farthest away. Race results are as follows:
