These runners were just some of the 160 runners that took part Saturday in the Tim Hortons Four Fathers Run. The Cross Border Challenge series concludes on Saturday, October 27 with the Pumpkin Run. Visit for complete race results.

AMHERST-The penultimate race of the 2013 Cross-Border Challenge took place Saturday in Amherst.  The sixth leg of the Cross Border Challenge series, which consisted of a 5 and 10 K portion, was walked/ran by some 160 participants.

The run, which was organized by the Cumberland Y Service Club of Amherst and the Y-Menettes, saw members of the Amherst Striders running club take part too.

“Running has really grown in the area,” stated race committee organizer Terry MacDonald. “Five years ago, few people ran in Amherst,” he claimed, “Now, there are 200 hundred runners in the Amherst Striders running club alone,” he added.

Refreshments were provided for runners following the conclusion of the race.

The Cross-Border Challenge Series began with the Spring Tune-Up in April. The Centennial Trail 10 K was held in May; The Cross-Border Challenge took place in June; the Pugwash HarbourFest 10 K and Wild Blueberry were held in July and August respectively while the Four Fathers Run was held this past Saturday.

The Cross-Border Challenge series concludes October 26 with the Pumpkin Run.
