|It's Cannery Road Race time in|
Organizers are bringing the popular race back after they took a one year break in 2015, with volunteer fatigue having made that decision necessary last year.
Things appear to be back on track for the 2016 event and the run that attracts both the serious runner and families looking for a fun day out is almost ready to take to the Port Edward roadway.
The wrap on the running season takes place on Saturday along the road that leads from Port Edward into the North Pacific Cannery Historical Site.
It's one of the more scenic routes for local runners around, making use of the mountainside and channel to provide the backdrop to the event.
For those that will be heading out to Port Edward for the day, there are a number of options available for participants for this years run.
A 10 kilometre walk and 1/2 marathon which starts at 11 AM.
The 1 kilometre Kids Fun Race which starts at 11:30 AM.
5 kilometre and 10 Kilometre Runs and the 5 kilometre walk with participants leaving the start line at Noon hour.
The day also features a BBQ which starts at 1 PM, along with the presentation of wards and the draw for prizes those festivities begin at 1 PM.
Pre Race Package Pickup and Late Registration is taking place at Cowpuccino's Coffee House on
Friday evening from 7-9 PM, while Day of the Race registration will be available at North Pacific Cannery Site from to 10-10:30 AM Saturday.
Members of the Rupert Runners receive a five dollar discount from the day's running fees.
Those just looking to take in the BBQ can grab the lunch time fare for 7 dollars.
