The Tour turns 41

     reprinted from 2016

A few changes have occurred over the 40 years but essentially the Sudbury Masters Continental Insulation Ramsey Tour has remained true to its routes. The original goal was to provide a high level running opportunity to athletes in the community and also make it accessible to all levels. The original 25km route around Ramsey Lake might have proved difficult for the novice participant so a 5km run was put in place. The growing popularity of half marathons in the running community saw the directors reduce the long run to 21.1km in 1981. Both courses have remained the same since. The long one still goes around the lake, still goes through 8km of tough hills and can still trap an unsuspecting runner at the CP rail track. But it's also still one of the most rewarding runs in the area. The short one serves multiple rolls. It has become a college and university sanctioned race which draws the faster, younger crowd. But it also pulls in those who would like to challenge the kids, themselves or their peers. And not to be left out, everyone is welcome... from the very best to those where the challenge will just be to finish upright and hopefully smiling.

Continental Insulation came onboard as title sponsor in 2013. Their financial contribution along with others like Dairy Queen and about 22 other sponsors...and, of course the participants, have allowed the run to assist athletes from both Laurentian University and Cambrian College in meeting financial obligations while furthering their education. The grateful students have made their thanks noted by continuing to support the race through volunteering or running in the event well after their school days are done.

Original Masters runners Jesse Winters and Louis Moustgaard continue to put on the run every year without fail. They do have the assistance of their significant others as well as support from remaining Masters and many members of the SudburyRocks!! Running Club and the Laurentian Voyageurs. The guys must be doing something right as this is the oldest run in Sudbury and as it turns 41 it doesn't appear to be going away any time soon.

The run has stayed true to its original goals of providing a high quality running experience open to all. We applaud the organizers and supporters.

You can still register for the event at the Sudbury Running Room on Saturday or before the race on Sunday. Please come early if planning this option.

See you on Sunday for the 5k or the half marathon.
