Registration is now open for Candle Creek’s second annual half marathon, which will be held Aug. 29. This event is hosted by the Wells Gray Outdoors Club, with partnership and guidance from Runner’s Sole located in Kamloops, as well as partnership and support from many local and surrounding businesses.

Last year’s event was a great success and we are looking forward to another great time.

This exciting race promises to engage and attract locals and visitors to experience a fun race day in Clearwater. The race will have something for everyone as it consists of a 2.5 km kids race, 5 km, 10 km, and 21 km courses in which participants can run or walk. This is a trail run/walk with rough terrain and it’s also a timed event.
