Runners, walkers, strollers, and hikers will descend on Gyro Park on Sunday for the 33rd annual Terry Fox Run.
The non-competitive event honours Terry Fox and keeps his Marathon of Hope alive. Last year saw over 250 Greater Trail residents participate and raise over $10,000 for the cause.
The day kicks off with the Kiwanis making an amazing pancake breakfast at 8:30 a.m. at the Gyro concession stand, with registration going from 9 a.m. to noon to accommodate late participants.
At 9:30 a.m. the Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue will look to take back the tug-o-war title from Trail Local 941 and Teck Emergency Services, while the kids will go toe-to-toe on the tug-o-war rope with the Trail Smoke Eaters.
As always, participation in the event is by donation.
Participants are asked to remember Terry’s wish – if you’ve given a dollar, you’re part of the Marathon Of Hope.
Participants can walk, run, bike, roller blade, etc. for two, five, or 10 kilometres.
