4th Annual Run For Reijo – Tuesday September 7th 2021
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 years since we lost our good friend Reijo Puiras.  Please join us on Tuesday September 7 as we run or 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.

Register at Fresh Air until Sunday September 5.  Or register in person 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.

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 to choose from – 2 km or 6 km, starting at 6:30 pm from the lower stadium.  We will set up a physically distanced mass start!  Please follow the directions of our staff at the start line.

Bake sale!  Draw prizes!

The chalet will not be open, so there will be no access to washrooms or water fountains.  There is an outhouse in the stadium.

Please save the dates for the last few of our Tuesday evening trail runs:
September 21
October 5
November 9 – Under the Lights

And save the date for the 17th Annual Kamview Fresh Air Off-Road Half Marathon on Sunday October 24!

***PLEASE NOTE: This event will take place under the Thunder Bay District Health Unit COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.  YOU MUST WEAR A MASK COVERING YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH WHEN AT THE REGISTRATION TABLE AND ANY OTHER TIME WHEN YOU ARE UNABLE TO MAINTAIN 2 METRE PHYSICAL DISTANCE***

Sincerely,
The Kamview Crew
