Last year’s Community Spring Run start line was revved and ready to run for fun

Come run in the sun for fun

Nakusp’s local running club, the Arrow Lakes Running Group is organizing the second annual Nakusp Spring Community Run.

Nakusp’s local running club, the Arrow Lakes Running Group is organizing the second annual Nakusp Spring Community Run, a run/walk event on May 13, 2012. We are expecting participation to be even greater than last year’s event, anticipating over 200 people registering to run or walk the courses. Each year, all event day proceeds go to support a variety of local causes. This year, the proceeds will be donated to the Nakusp Public Library and the Arrow Lakes Medical Aid Society.

Event organizers want to raise as much money as possible for these deserving community groups by making our event the best it can be.  Along with the 5K Run and 2K Walk, we have also added a 10K Run this year.  The day will include a firemen’s breakfast hosted by the Nakusp Volunteer Fire Department, a children’s storytime hosted by our local librarian, Sabina, a Kids’ Fun Run (six years and under), a fabulous bake sale, a raffle draw, and, if that isn’t enough, there will also be music. Events will take place in and around Cenotaph Park in Nakusp, beginning with pancakes flipped by firemen from 9 to 11 a.m. Then it’s off to the races, starting with the 10K at 9:30 a.m., followed by the 5K at 9:45 and the 2K walk at 10 a.m.

We hope to draw many participants and supporters from Nakusp as well as surrounding communities to come out and join in the excitement. Last year’s participants came from all over, including Fauquier, Burton, New Denver, Kaslo, Nelson, and even as far away as Alberta.

So, come join us at Cenotaph Park in Nakusp on Mother’s Day. Register for an event, come out for breakfast with the firemen, sample some baked goods, cheer for the racers or just bring your lawn chair and enjoy!

Registration forms can be picked up at Little Mountain Outdoor Gear in Nakusp or contact Kari at to have a form emailed to you. If you would like to volunteer, get in contact with Kari at the same email address.
