CHARLOTTETOWN – It may have been the only run to escape rainfall on Canada Day this year, perhaps fitting for the Cradle of Confederation.
The annual Canada Day Bash in Charlottetown was a great success, according to Jenn Hanus of The Running Room.
“The race went very well this morning,” she said, last night. “The weather was perfect – overcast but not raining, and the participants had fun.”
There were 110 people who registered for the event, which included run/walks in the 10 mile, 10K, 5K and 3K distances.

Hanus was grateful that they were fortunate with the weather, although the mosquitoes were reportedly hungry.
“We really did get lucky,” she said. “There was a forecast for rain, but it slid by us.”
She thanked all of the volunteers, organizers and participants who made the event possible, and the host, the PEI Humane Society, the designated charity supported by this year’s run.
