Letter to the Editor: Pope’s Peak Adventure Run

The Pope’s Peak run in Fort St. James has been taking place for the past 37 years.

The Pope’s Peak run in Fort St. James has been taking place for the past 37 years.

It attracts runners and walkers throughout the region and in some years, even as far away as Alberta.

Walkers begin at the trailhead and runners begin at the lakeshore and run a total of 22 km up to the peak and down.

This year, water was supplied and nutritious treats were prepared by the town’s Soup Wallah.

I really look forward to this event and I am so glad it has continued.

But it has continued only because of Keith Gordon from Fort St. James and the wonderful group of volunteers who make themselves available each year.

They are friendly, encouraging and very helpful.

I want to thank them very much for their time and dedication in ensuring that this unique running event still takes place.

I will be back and can only hope there are enough volunteers next October to ensure its success once again.

Thank you everyone.

Charlie Grove
