THUNDER BAY – A new season of Fresh Air Tuesday evening Trail Runs has begun! And while the trails were damp and muddy, the sun was shining and the crowd was excited. More than 90 participants ventured out on the 2.5 kilometre short course or the 5 kilometre long course! And as always, there was a large crowd of kids participating in the kids’ mini-run for treats! Alan Cranston from Fresh Air was on hand taking registration, helping with timing, and handing out winner and draw prizes.
The schedule is out for another season of Fresh Air Trail Runs at Kamview Nordic Centre. Kamview Nordic Centre General Manager, Dave Suttie, is confident that the trails will be in excellent condition for the next trail run, a special event run known as the Fresh Air 10 kilometre and 3 kilometre on Friday, May 24.
