Every year the Mews committee donates $5 per runner to a local charity. This year we are teaming up with the Community Food Sharing Association given the immediate challenge those in our communities are facing.
Their staff , with the help of hundreds of caring volunteers and community- minded businesses, manage the collection and distribution of food through 54 food banks to more than 10,700 children, women, and men throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
Help us get to $2,500! Not running? Click to donate.
We are continuing last year's introduction of a finisher's medal, but its even better!
Every finisher will get a Quidi Vidi branded finishers medal that is only going to be available in 2023. We are hoping to introduce a new Quidi Vidi branded medal every year so don't miss out on starting your collection!
And that's not all! To cool down (or warm up) after your race, head on over to Quidi Vidi Brewery for a complimentary race day beverage*.

This is one of the oldest continuous road running races in the province, with more than 35 years of racing. The course is fast and runs from the Mundy Pond area to Quidi Vidi Lake. It is a popular event as a tune up to the Tely 10 each summer.
The race is named for Henry G.R. Mews, the mayor of St. John's from 1949 - 1965.
Noah Defreyne was the top finisher in the 2023 Crown and Anchor Mews Memorial 8k in a time of 26:01. He was followed closely by female champion Kate Bazeley in 26:07. A cool and mauzy race day included 252 finishers and over 100 volunteers. Click on the pic for all the results. Over $1500 was raised for Community Food Sharing!
