It was cool, wet morning on Oct. 23 but that did not stop a most dedicated bunch of runners and walkers from taking part in the 37th annual Mount Pope Run in Fort St. James.

Runners from Prince George and even from as far as Smithers took part this year.

Each year, the run begins at Cottonwood Park. Runners and walkers will then tackle the Mount Pope Trail complete with a spectacular view as they reach the summit.

Organizer, Keith Gordon was excited to count down the runners as they waited at the start line.

“It was windy and chilly especially at the top,” Gordon said. “Some said it felt like Everest or K-2.”

Despite the weather, participants were excited to conquer their way to the finish.

Gordon was thrilled with the results.

“As organizer, I’m so grateful to the local runners who came out and supported this event,” Gordon said.

The $10 participation fee includes a place mat for each participant complete with a collage of memorable moments for all who reach the summit.
