Organizers of the Peace Arch News Canada Day 10K run – which is scheduled for Friday – are still in need of volunteers to get the race get off the starting line without a hitch.
“Volunteers are hugely needed,” said Mitchell Hudson of Try Events, the company that puts on the run.
There is a variety of volunteer positions left to fill, and those interested in finding out more can email the event’s volunteer co-ordinator, Debbie, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 778-292-1367.
Hudson said participation numbers are also down from last year’s mark of 250 runners – about 180 were signed up as of late last week – but he expects a number of last-minute registrations, especially if the weather forecast is favourable.
“If we could get our numbers back to the 250 mark like last year, I’d be thrilled. Hopefully we’ll get that many people again,” he said.
In addition to getting to take part in the run, participants also get a race T-shirt; winners also receive medals.
