Announcing North Bay parkrun, ON

29900416

Ontario has a new parkrun, starting April 14th, 9am along the Kate Pace Way.

 

Lead by enthusiastic David Holloway, the town based in North Eastern Ontario is ready for the community event that encourages people to get outside, happier, and healthier.

 

The parkrun will start at Veteran’s field, and will be an out and back along the Kate Pace Way.  This path is 12 km long but we will only use 2.5km of that.  The path is named after Olympic skier and native daughter Kate Pace.  The path is intended as a shared use greenway and is used by locals for running, walking, cycling and even inline skating.

 

North Bay parkrun is acrively looking for volunteers to help out.  If you are able to, we’d love to hear from you at northbayhelpers@parkrun.com

 

For those taking part, please register and bring your barcode.  You can sign up to receive your barcode here: www.parkrun.ca/register.  This only needs to be done once and after registering you can visit any parkrun in the world.

 

We look forward to welcoming you on April 14th!
