TRURO – A ‘hilly’ race will challenge young and old this weekend in Victoria Park.
The Humongously Hilly 10km trail race and relay will get underway Saturday with registration at 9 a.m. for both children and adults. Participants should meet at the park bandshell with the kids’ event starting at 9:30 and adults take off at 10 a.m. The run will be 10 km: either 2X5 km relays or 4X2.5 KM relays. Specific rules and further details will be made available at that time.
There will be three relay locations, including a 2.5 km trek that will start close to Truro Junior High School. A second relay station is about 5 km and is close to the park entry at the top of Young Street. A third station is 7.5 km and begins close to the parking lot at the top of Wood Street. Much of the trails will include hills and some challenging terrain.
After the race, fruit, water and chocolate milk will be available.
