Students run over dunes and forest trails at Misty Meadows meet

A bright, breezy day made for great running in Tlell at this year’s cross-country meet last week.

Students from schools all over Haida Gwaii ran the Misty Meadows loop on Thursday, May 11, supported by coaches and parent volunteers.

Students Grades 4 and 5 circled the 1 km loop once, while Grade 6s did a double loop, and Grade 7s ran three times through the woods and over the sand dunes.
