The Northern View Cannery Road Race is less than two weeks away

Northern View takes on scenic half-marathon, 10k, 5k, and 1k kid fun

Ready, set, run!

The Northern View will be presenting the annual Cannery Road Race on Sept. 14 and hosted by the Rupert Runners.

Kids are encouraged to get active as they can take part in their own race for free. Adults have the option to run or walk the 5K, 10K or half-marathon.

“This is a running event aimed to be as inclusive as possible. Supporters are also encouraged to join the celebration BBQ with the participants while absorbing the natural and historic beauty of the North Pacific Cannery,” Shannon Lough, co-race director and president of Rupert Runners, said.

Both local and out-of-town runners are can join in the race. The route follows the road leading from the North Pacific Cannery, along the Skeena River, past Lelu Island and through Port Edward.

Following the race, runners can refuel with a delicious BBQ meal on the working dock next to the Skeena River as they spend the afternoon exploring the historic site.

Last year more than 125 runners, from competitive athletes to kids, participated in the event. There was also a contingent of runners who travelled from Smithers and Terrace, some of whom took home the first place title.

The event this year is sponsored by The Northern View, Rupert Runners, North Pacific Cannery, Zikhara Yoga, and Pembina.
