A Wet and Soggy Success!
Who else but runners would dress up in funny costumes, go out in a steady rain in cool conditions and run as hard as one can over many kilometers and call it fun? The all new Kelowna Pub Run relay was held on Sunday, November 15, 2015. This 29 kilometer relay run around lower Kelowna started and finished at EK’s Grill on Glenmore Avenue, with several beer stops along the route.
Seventeen teams from throughout the Okanagan participated in the relay and many great costumes were evident, as can be seen above and below this article. Upon completion of the run a great meal was enjoyed at EK’s Grill, amid much frivolity and goodwill.
Thanks to all who participated and a special thanks to Nathan Larente, Sandra MacNaughton and Corrine Gable for all their hard work in organizing this fun event.
