    Item Description:

    We’ve changed the route! A gentler and more inspiring route will involve a trail section through Mouat’s Park and a run through town on a sleepy Sunday with views of the harbor along the way to add to the experience. The route runs through Mouats’ Park, along Jackson Avenue, Seaview Avenue, Fulford Ganges Road, Lower Ganges Road, Park Drive, Aldous Road and returns to the Rainbow Road Aquatic Centre. This constitutes a 2.5 km loop that participants can choose to repeat up to 10km. No bikes on this route.

    The Terry Fox Run is an annual event that encourages the community to run/walk in support of cancer research, community building and health promotion.

    The Terry Fox Run/Walk will be held on Sunday September 23rd, 2018 at the Rainbow Road Aquatic Centre at 262 Rainbow Road. Registration will begin at 9:00 for an event start of 10:00. Participants can look forward to post-run refreshments and snacks, on-site family entertainment and a free swim following the event.

    For more information and to register online, please visit: http://www.terryfox.org

    *PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SSI RUN IS ONE WEEK LATER THAN THE NATIONAL RUN (we can’t compete with the Fall Fair!)*
