Make history with first local run

Have you registered for the Walk/Run for Heritage yet?

On March 31, support two worthy historical causes: the Agassiz Harrison Historical Society and the Kilby Historic Site, while at the same time helping yourself to better health with a walk or run in the country.

It could be a chance to warm up for the 10 km Vancouver Sun Run with a 3 or 5 kilometer run, or to just enjoy the company of family and friends with a 3 or 5 km walk along our beautiful country roads.

There are some great prizes to be won and the proceeds all go to support our own local Agassiz Harrison Historical Society and the Kilby Historic Site.

You can register in person at the Agassiz Harrison Museum, at Kilby Historic Site or get the form on line at  www.runningroom.com.  For more information, phone 604-796-3545 or 604-796-9576.

But hurry. The Early Bird registration deadline is March 9.  The event will be held Saturday, March 31. Registration is at 8 a.m., with a 9 a.m. start.
