The extremely damp weather didn’t deter some resilient participants of the Canada Day Walk/Run event. Approximately 60 walkers and runners came out for a mild but very wet outing along the trail. The route had to be modified due to some flooding, but other areas could not be avoided. Large puddles covered sections of the trail, causing some to weave and avoid and others to run right through them.
Dedicated volunteers assisted with registration, route set up, and water stations and cheered on the participants along the way.
Overall the event was a success and it was great to see young and old out enjoying our trail no matter the weather. Close to four-hundred dollars was raised which will be donated to the Granite Ridge Education Centre to assist with transportation for youth to athletic events.
