Runners from all ages took part in the second annual Kitimat Walk Run Festival on Saturday, June 19th. They gathered at Radley Park and ran down Kuldo and along the Alcan Highway.
“It’s about accomplishing your goal and being happy with participating and being active,” said Cori Boguski. “Last year we started are run as a festival rather then a race so it was a festival of being active and leading happy healthy lives.”
There were 18 people running the 21 Kilometre run, 50 people running the 10 Kilometre run and 30 running the 5 Kilometre run. The rout had been changed from last years run walk festival so they were easier to keep track of.
The runners had three choices for the distance they ran. 21 Kilometre runners started up near Baxter Street, down to Rivtow and back to Radley Park. Both the 5 and 10 Kilometre Runners started at Radley Park. The 5 Kilometre runners turned around at Methanex while the 10 runners turned around at Anderson Creek.
Among the runners was Daniel Baldock, a 69 year old man running the 21 Kilometre run. After the run was finished, the runners gathered at Radley Park for prizes and sandwiches.
