Hundreds of kids take part in River Flats Run
Elm Street School turned its annual River Flats Run on Friday into a festive street carnival. On a beautiful autumn day, more than 1,000 students from all over Medicine Hat turned up in droves to dance to the music of Mahoney, celebrate life and take part in a refreshing run through the beautiful River Flats neighbourhood Elm Street School calls home.
The participants in the run could not have asked for a better day, said principal Katrina Corbett.
“It’s been a wonderful day,” she said. “This race just brings all of our schools in the city together as a big community. It’s just a great way to get everyone together and celebrate.”
Students take off at the starting line Friday morning during the Elm Street School River Flats Run. The 3 km and 6 km run is open to all schools in the public, Catholic and Prairie Rose school divisions and loops through the River Flats neighbourhood.
