Our Ridge Ramble Cross Country Run, now in its sixth year, goes on Saturday 29 September at 11 a.m.. Start and finish is at the golf course driving range. Many thanks in advance to the Golf Club for their support in making the venue possible – this gives us an outstanding, spectator-friendly route. Typically we get about eighty entries, from all over the Peace. There are age categories from the very youngest all the way up to Masters.

As usual, we need volunteer help to put on such an event. The races are over fairly quickly, so just a couple of hours or less of volunteer time are involved. Tasks include course set-up and take-down, registration, marshalling and time-keeping. Please call me or Linda at 242 3984 if you are able to help us out in any way. Many of our traditional volunteers have moved away in the last year, so please consider helping us out.

If you are interested in taking part, go to www.wapitistriders.com for more details on this race and the cross-country running series that it is a part of. And if you know of other runners in town that aren?t yet joined up with WNMS, please let them know about the event.
