Spiros Tompros Long Distance Runner Slates Saturday Run!

Spiros Tompros, began long distance running very early.
'When I was four or five years old, my grandmother used to give me bus fare. I kept the bus fare,and ran from the village to the city,'shared Spiros adding, 'And that was 19 kilometers!'

For Spiros, one of his most challenging marathons, has been the Uxbridge Marathon,that winds in and out of forested areas. In cooler weather,Spiros enjoys running the Kawartha Rail Trail along the north edge of the village of Omemee,but finds in hot weather, deerflies can be extremely bothersome along the trail for runners. Watch for Spiros to start his run from Beaver Narrows to Bailey's Bay via Highway 7 through the village of Omemee, Saturday July 14, 2012 beginning at 7 am.

Spiros Runs Fundraising Marathons

Spiros Tompros is part of the Running Maniacs club of Bowmanville that is running to raise funds for Homeless Youth next Saturday, July 21, 2012. Spiros enjoys running for worthy causes and figures he raises about $1,500 per year for charities through his marathonng efforts.

Although retired,Spiros keeps on the run assisting his wife with an Art Gallery they run from their home, and providing a welcoming atmosphere for several young children during the school year.

Spiros, and his wife Pat, enjoy welcoming their grandchildren to spend part of their summers with them at Beaver Narrows Resort,just north of the village of Omemee. They are looking forward to several family friendly events to share with their grandchildren,including the ever-popular 'Christmas in July'.

Here is our YouTube interview Spiros kindly granted us, when he dropped into the Welcome Centre at 41 King Street East.
