Thank you for a great second year!

We had a wonderful second year. Despite worries that our run date would co-incide with Hurricane Earl, everything turned out fine. Earl decided to pass us by the day before the run, and Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous sunny 15 degrees.

We were able to streamline the registration process this year. The online registration/prepayment was a real help. Atlantic Chip Timing was a wonderful company that came from Fredericton and handled the timing/results logistics.

Thank you again to all of the volunteers who gave their time - we couldn't have done it without you. Our North Shore Recreation Centre benefited from the event, as we were able to donate $1200 from the proceeds of the registrations. This is a huge help for their overwhelming operating costs.

See you next year for year three!

Walk-in registrations still welcome!

For those of you who have missed online registration, walk-ins are welcome the morning of the run. Registration begins at 8:30am at the North Shore Recreation Centre. Announcements at warm-up begin at 9:30.
Hurricane Earl has passed up by unscathed, we've gone over the trial and cleared away fallen branches, and - save for a few puddles - things are looking great. Hope to see everyone out for a wonderful walk or run!

Run like the wind!

It's hard to believe we're only two days away from the Second Annual Butter Trail Fun Run. We've been very busy getting all the last minute details in place and checking over the courses. The Butter Trail is in great shape.

Despite some rumours that I've heard, the Run is NOT postponed due to the approaching Hurricane Earl. The Tatamagouche Fire Department has decided to postpone their auction that was scheduled for Saturday, as the storm is due to arrive that day. The forecast looks fine for Sunday (a little rain would be nice after the recent heat wave!) so we're going full steam ahead, as planned.

We look forward to a great turnout this year. Let's support our Rec Centre and have lots of fun while we're at it!

See you Sunday!
