    The 92nd running of the Boxing Day 10 miler will again take place at the YMCA in Hamilton Ontario.  The volunteers of Hamilton Harriers running club take pride in putting on this historic event.  Staging the race out of the YMCA provides excellent amenities including change rooms with showers, a large gymnasium for registration, refreshments and awards.  The scenic and challenging course includes three miles of paved waterfront trail, a half mile of gravel rail trail, the uphill seventh mile and finishing with the century homes on Aberdeen and Bay streets.  The run attracts recreational and elite runners who end their year with this well organized event.  There is a $2,500 cash purse which attracts top area runners.
