If you feel like it’s been a slow start to the summer and you haven’t really spent enough time in the great outdoors, now’s your chance to get active – and benefit a charity too.

The annual Canuck Place Adventure Race will take place on Sunday, September 18 at Locarno Beach, in support of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

Adult and teen Adventure Racers will kayak a 3 km route from Locarno Beach, bike 20 km from Jericho Park through Pacific Spirit Park Trails, and run 6 km along Spanish Banks.
