The third edition of RunInn Delta's Boundary Bay Cross Country meet proved to be a tremendous success.

Over 1,100 kids from 14 schools descended on Centennial Beach late last month to take part in races at two distances.

"The goal of our event is to encourage participation for all levels of athletes," said Kevin Ridley of the RunInn. "Any kid can do our event. The first year we had 400 kids and this year we more than doubled that so we are thrilled with the turnout."

The event offers a free barbecue hosted by the TOOBs for every child that competes in a race as well as medals provided by the Century Group.

"These events could not be done without a lot of volunteers," said race organizer Tracy Derrheim. "We had over 40 volunteers from Sacred Heart School as well as help from many local businesses like Budget Foods, Saputo, Saucony, Southcoast Landscaping, DNA Data and many others."

The meet was able to raise $1,100 for the Hannah's Heroes Foundation.
