Run benefits Hospice Society

Focused Fitness organizing run, promoting active living

The inaugural Cariboo Spring Run

An upcoming event will have South Cariboo residents lacing up their shoes and getting active.

The Second Annual Cariboo Spring 10-km Run, Relay or Walk Around the Lakes is set for May 10.

Its starting point is the 108 Mile Heritage Site at 9 a.m. and also includes a five-kilometre walk and five/five-km relay for teams of two.

Proceeds from the run, organized by local gym Focused Fitness, go to the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society.

Last year’s inaugural event saw 61 participants and raised $1,300 for the 100 Mile House Waterpark Society.

Organizer Kam Taylor says he is hoping for more than 100 entrants this year.

The run is about encouraging a healthy lifestyle, he explains.

“We have so much open space around 100 Mile, Williams Lake, etc., that people don’t use very often, besides for hunting and fishing. We have trails everywhere.

“Since I’ve been in 100 Mile, I see more and more people being active, walking around, jogging. We’re encouraging staying active, healthy living.”

The registration deadline is May 2.

Registration forms can be found online or picked up at Focused Fitness on Birch Avenue.
