One day, your way

Information about this year’s Terry Fox (virtual) Run

Hey Clearwater!

As you can imagine with COVID-19, things are going to be quite different for this year’s run.

Participants will be required to register via the Terry Fox Website at www.terryfox.org. Then, on Sunday, Sept. 20, you can get up and head out to walk, run, bike, hike, ride or wheel the route of your choice (while maintaining Dr. Henry’s rules on social distancing of course)!

This virtual run mirrors the same passion for Terry, his mission and our community, as every other in the past 39 years. The difference this year is that we will unite in sport, not in person.

A Terry Fox app has been created where users can set goals, monitor their progress, be inspired and inspire others, connect with friends and family and support cancer research.

A few “your way” ideas provided by organizers include, waking up at 4 a.m. on Sept. 20 (Terry’s favourite time of day) to go for a run, just you and the road, gather those in your social circle and go to your favourite Terry Fox run route, create a challenge for members of a sports team or group by setting up a run on Facetime, connect with friends or family in another country and “run together,” or encourage family members to join you for a barbecue after their run.

As some of you have already noticed, Terry Fox signs, directional arrows and kilometre boards have been put up throughout the traditional route in town. The route runs past the Clearwater Secondary School, through the Weyerhauser subdivision and beyond.

Please bear in mind that the previous five-kilometre route finish line via the pipeline trail behind Clearwater Secondary School is off limits this year due to the pipeline construction that is underway.

Additional information will be posted over the next week, but if you require more specific information please feel free to reach out.

Thanks Clearwater, hope we get a big turnout again this year!

Love where you live!

Mark & Lynette Taylor
