On Sunday, Nov. 4 at 10 a.m. there will be a 7.4-kilometre cross-country race beginning near the Rodeo Grounds.

The race will be the last of six races put on this year by the Interior Running Association and sponsored by the Vernon running and outdoor store, The Starting Block.

The route will have runners make their way along the relatively flat Trans-Canada Trail towards Summerland, and then at the 3.5-kilometre mark they will head back towards the Rodeo Grounds along a higher trail, which includes a few hills before a generally flat and downhill 1.5 kilometres to the finish. T

he course will have washroom facilities at the start, spotters along the route, prizes for the first three finishers in each of the five-year age categories, as well as draw prizes.

Steve King, veteran race announcer, will be encouraging runners at the finish line.

The race is suitable for both casual joggers as well as more competitive runners.

Organizers say thanks to Dale MacDonald at the Summerland Recreation Department for his support and to Summerland Sweets and Sleeping Giant Fruit Winery for prizes.

For more information, or if you would like to volunteer at the race, please email Bill Head at theheadband@live.com or Mike Braid at jamibraid@shaw.ca.
