EVENT HISTORY

The Nature's Emporium Run for Southlake is the evolution of the Bob Hartwell Challenge that began in 2002 to pay tribute to local businessman, civic leader and avid runner, Bob Hartwell. Through his incredible contribution to the community, Bob touched many lives in his 54 years. The Run for Southlake honours his legacy by raising much-needed funds for our local hospital, so that we can all continue to have access to the leading edge care that we deserve, close to home.

This event has since evolved into one of Southlake’s biggest annual signature event and become a fixture in our community, with the first ever sold out event in 2018. Just as Southlake touches the lives of people beyond York Region, participants come from all over to join in. From South Simcoe, Durham and Dufferin Counties, Toronto and even as far north as Muskoka, participants from 3 to 80 years old come to support leading edge health care for their family, friends and neighbours.
