Tlell Sun Run keeps it cool

More than 50 runners on Haida Gwaii took part in the annual 5K or 10K event

This year’s Tlell Sun Run was quite a success with over 50 people of all ages participating.

The sun came out of hiding once in a while to check up on the race although a few rain showers kept things cool.

Start and finish line was at the gate to the Tlell fair grounds. The race proceeded 5 km north across the Tlell river bridge on Highway 16, also 5 km south to the vicinity of the Richardson Ranch.
