Heritage run gets green light in Agassiz

Council okays plans for first annual Run/Walk for Heritage

  • Jan. 30, 2012 6:00 a.m.

A new running event to be held in Agassiz received the support of council this week, when their request to have fees waived was approved.

The first annual Run/Walk for Heritage will meander through town on Saturday, March 31.  It will include a 3 km and a 5 km route, beginning and ending at the Kent Fitness/ Activity Centre.

The routes will take participants through roadways, and that will require road closures and detours. Fees were waived unanimously for the run, including those for the use of the Fitness/ Activity Centre, Agricultural Grounds parking lots and the staffing costs for manning road closures.

The run is being organized by the Agassiz Harrison Historical Society and the Fraser Heritage Society as a way to generate funds for heritage incentives, as well to help improving the quality of life for those who participate.

The event is being hosted in part by The Running Room in Abbotsford, as well.

Registration is at the museum, at Kilby or the Running Room. The cost to register will be $25 per person or $75 per family of four, until March 1. After March 1, that cost will rise to $30 and $90.

For more information about taking part in the Run/Walk for Heritage, phone the museum at 604-796-3545.
