Help us display and tell the story of this rare and original marker for the 125th running of the Hamilton Herald “Around The Bay Race” first held on Christmas Day 1894. 

The City and the Burlington Runners have determined the new location for the 15 M post, visible to the races near the 24k point of the current race route. The historical information for the  panel is in the final vetting stage.

 “HERALD 15–M.”                                

The Burlington Runners Club with the endorsement of the Heritage Committee of the City of Burlington is working to :
    - Make the marker prominent on the Around The Bay race route.
    - Provide historical information about the posts role in the oldest footrace in North America.
    - Create a setting for the post that encourages people to stop and learn its history by proving a bench and potentially an art piece reflecting the markers history.
