The ‘Gapper is truly a unique experience.

The ‘Gapper’s 1K, new 2.5K and 5K routes traverse through beautiful, scenic environs located in the Niagara region. To be more specific, over some of the 140 acres of the rolling hills of “Agape Valley” in Pelham, Ontario (nearby to Effingham’s “Short Hills”). This upcoming event marks our 9th year running the ‘Gapper, and we expect even more runners to join us on September 21st, 2019.

After the ‘Gapper…

1K awards for top TEN girls and top TEN boys.
2.5K awards for top TEN girls and top TEN boys.
5K awards for top male and female overall.
Awards for top three men and top three women in each age group (under 15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+)

The reason we “run” the ‘Gapper

Kids at Agape are excited for boat raceAnother great reason to be involved with this event is that some proceeds go to benefit a full summer of Children’s programs at Agap√© Valley. The Gapper is one initiative that helps Agape to help keep costs as low as possible for parents of children in Niagara who send children to Day Camp here on the same beautiful property where the Gapper takes place. Thanks for your support! More detailed information about the summer camp and other seasonal events is available on Agape Valley’s own site here.
