Spring sprint for Terrace community

There were 164 people out for the Centennial Spring Classic fun run and barbeque today, April 29.

A crowd of 164 runners took off in the Centennial Spring Classic Fun Run this morning, April 29.

It was a cloudy and chilly spring morning, but more than 30 kids tracked a double-loop around the school yard of Centennial Christian School in a kids fun run, just prior to the main 5K race.

At 10:30, the crowd of more than 150 people took off in the 5K fun run loop, with faster runners in the lead and folks pushing strollers taking up the back of the pack.

The run was followed in the afternoon with a community BBQ in celebration of the school’s 50th anniversary this year.

Below are photos of the start of the spring classic, and at the bottom are a few from the kids race.

 

A handful of young boys eagerly led the pack at the take off of the 5K spring classic. L-R are Nash and Owen Muller, Blake Collison, Luke McGee and Connor Block. The lady in the blue with them is Adrienne Kaul.
