September 24, 2013   ·   0 Comments

Almost two dozen participants braved the cold weather and rain on Saturday morning for the Tom Marchese Trail Run at the Cold Creek Conservation area in Nobleton to benefit the King Township Food Bank.
Runners who took part in the event conquered 6 kilometres of trails through Cold Creek, while walkers covered three kilometres with umbrellas in hand.
Organizer Tom Marchese said around $1,500 was raised for the food bank, which provides a great service to the community.
Marchese is hoping to hold the event annually and he was happy with the support the event received.
“We would not have been able to pull this off without the Township and everyone’s help,” he said.
For the run itself, 31 registered to walk or run and there were 11 volunteers. A total of 23 managed to do the course.
Amanda Young finished first with a time of 40 minutes, 19.2 seconds.
Franz Vubo was second in 41:19.1, followed by Alan Thwaits in 43:17.9.
The rest of the pack included Denise Bowles, 47:13.7; Debora Lamch, 47:13.7; Jake Djordjevic, 56:30; Guido Spinelli, 56:31; Nolan Mazzei, 63:33 and Vincenzo Mazzei, 63:38.
Marchese remarked that for some, this was their first visit to Cold Creek and they found the park a perfect spot for such an event.
