Quesnel women’s fall challenge

Editor: Hello Ladies of Burns Lake! We invite you to visit Quesnel and participate in an uplifting, energetic and delightfully fun event.


Hello Ladies of Burns Lake! We invite you to visit Quesnel and participate in an uplifting, energetic and delightfully fun event. The Quesnel Women’s Fall Challenge will soon have its 21 birthday and we hope you can join us.

Make it a girls get away weekend by driving down on the Saturday, staying at one of the supporting hotels for the night and then sharing your Sunday morning with us. You can choose a 5 or 10 km walk, a 5 or 10 km run or a half marathon.  Stride and Glide from Prince George is handling our on line registrations and the timing demands. Your timing chip will be part of your bib. The long distance runners will start at 8:30 a.m. and the rest will head out at 9 a.m.  We will have walkers of all sizes from age 6 to over 90 and so far we have participants coming from Castlegar, Delta, Enderby, Kamloops, Mackenzie, Williams Lake and Prince George.

We are working towards the goal of raising enough money to purchase a digital mammography machine for the GR Baker Memorial Hospital.

So, what are you doing on the first weekend in October? We would love you to join us and share the energy. The hotels and businesses of Quesnel strongly support our efforts and will certainly welcome you. Bring a friend, a sister, a mother, a daughter or a whole car load. We hope to see you on Sunday, Oct. 5.
