The 14.7k or 9.1 mile Glen Tay Block Race was first run in 1907 with Ed Code as the winner. The race was contested as a Thanksgiving day event for several years. The modern edition began in 1967 as a Centennial year project, sponsored by Perth merchants Bill and Jack Wilson, and encouraged by sportsmen Rusty White and Peter Code. The successful event continues with Branch 244, Royal Canadian Legion as the sponsor. The Perth Runners organize and conduct the race with the assistance of numerous helpers, particularly along the race course. Many of the volunteers, especially families, have been involved for several years. The race begins and ends on Gore St., directly in front of the Perth Museum.
