Last Sunday, September 27 Burns Bog Conservation Society hosted the 11th annual Jog for the Bog Trail Run. The action kicked off on a sunny Sunday morning with close to 200 smiling faces in attendance. With the generously donated Starbuck’s coffee, Nature’s Path granola bars, and Pro Organics fruit in hand, everyone enjoyed in the live music by Good Question as the main event quickly approached. In the minutes leading up to the race, a set of Personal Trainers from Delta’s Studio 64 led an invigorating warm-up to pump up the crowd. Then promptly at 9am the horn was sounded and runners were all off, energized and ready for action.

The buzz of excitement continued throughout the afternoon as participants, spectators and passersby alike strolled through the exhibitors’ booths, enjoyed a delicious and nutritious Nature’s Path organic whole-wheat pancake breakfast, and partook in the closing award ceremony. Draw prizes, medals, trophies and gifts were awarded, proceeded by a closing speech by the Society’s President, Eliza Olson. Overall, it was a very exciting day for everyone involved!
