The annual Heritage to Hatzic 5 km and 10 km run takes place on Sunday, April 8 in Mission.
The event begins at 9 a.m. with last-minute, on-site registration taking place before the race (7-7:45 a.m.).
The event has been described by many as “Mission’s very own Sun Run” and this year’s goal is to raise $4,000 or more for the Mission Hospice Society so they can send some needy kids to summer camp.
Last year’s event came close to the $4,000 mark, and organizers are optimistic they can achieve that goal.
Sunday’s race will begin and end at Fraser River Heritage Park, near the shelter. The route will run a loop in the park and then head out to Hatzic before returning to the park and the finish line.
This course is relatively flat and has some fantastic views of the Fraser River and Valley.
Participants are encouraged to stay after they complete the course for awards, prizes for the fastest runners and draw prizes.
Registration fees are $40 for adults and $30 for children.
