Thank you Kindly
The 6th Annual Run for Reijo is taking place on August 29, 2023.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 6 years since we lost our good friend Reijo Puiras.
Please join us on Tuesday, September 27th as we run/jog/walk the trails at Kamview Nordic Centre and remember Reijo! Invite your family and friends!
“The more racers we have,” Reijo once said, “the more Wayne Gretzkys we’re likely to find.”
Here is the link to The Globe and Mail story announcing Reijo’s passing in 2017.
Pre-Register here: https://www.webscorer.com/register?raceid=310499
A minimum donation of $10.00 per participant is suggested with all donations going to the Reijo Puiras Legacy Fund. The Lappe Ski Centre established the Reijo Puiras Legacy Fund to continue the advancement of cross-country skiing in the region.
There will be two well marked courses from which to choose…a short course (2.5 km) and a long course (6km), starting at 6:30 pm from the lower stadium.
There will be a Kids Fun Run at the end with treats for all kids!
Fresh Air staff will be on site with great music and lots of great draw prizes!
On race day, only in-person registration will be available from 5:30 pm to 6 pm. The registration table will be set up outside in the stadium. Please park in the lower parking lot. The chalet will NOT be open, so there will be no access to washrooms or water fountains. There is an outhouse in the stadium.
Big Thunder Nordic Ski Club will be hosting a bake sale! $2 for 1 item, $5 for 3 items! Yum!
See you on the trails,
The Kamview Crew
