Registration starts at 9 a.m. with the run starting at 10 a.m.

“This is the third year we have been at the South Delta Rec Centre,” said Rotarian Sara Kirby. “This location is great. Lots of space for everyone. There will be music, food for afterwards and it’s just a great, fun atmosphere.”
The route is through Beach Grove and along the trails.

“We encourage anyone to come out. We have parents who come out with strollers, little kids out on bikes, a lot of walkers and runners,” she said. “It is really designed for anyone who wants to come out and participate in a fun event. The five-kilometre loop is a nice route for everyone.”
Participants don’t have to fundraise in advance in order to participate.

“There is no minimum donation required. Obviously it is nice to have donations to go towards the Terry Fox Foundation. You can register and donate online or bring a cheque or cash the day of,” said Kirby. “It’s all for a great cause and something that has become a tradition for many people.”
