There and back again: Fast Eddy returns

Former Clearwater resident Edward (Fast Eddy) Dostaler will be returning to this community next week

Edward (Fast Eddy) Dostaler runs next to the North Thompson River in the spring of 2015 as he runs across Canada west-to-east. He is due back in Clearwater on Wednesday

Former Clearwater resident Edward (Fast Eddy) Dostaler will be returning to this community next week.

Dostaler, who is in the final stage of his 25,000 km run across Canada and back to promote awareness about and raise funds for breast cancer and Alzheimer’s, ran through Clearwater and the North Thompson valley last spring heading east.

Now he is running back.

According to his website, he plans to take two days to run from Valemount to Blue River, arriving on Sept. 25.

Sept. 26 he will run from Blue River to Avola. The following day he will run to Vavenby.

He is due in Clearwater on Sept. 28. A hot dog sale will be held at Buy-Low from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on that day, with all proceeds to go to the two causes he is supporting, says Kim Pendergast, one of the event organizers.

“He grew up with my daughters. I knew him when he was a young boy,” said Pendergast.

While in Clearwater she expects he will speak to students at one or more of the local schools, meet with dignitaries and so on.

Friday, Sept. 30, after spending a day in Clearwater, Fast Eddy will run to Barriere. Oct. 1 he will run to McLure, and then Oct. 2 he will go to Kamloops.

 

The goal is to finish the run on Oct. 29 in Victoria. He started his run from Victoria on March 1, 2015.
