Run for the hills…and run they did

The Aurora (Labrador City) - - EDITORIAL - BY MIKE POWER

The an­nual run for the hills event spon­sored by Meni­hek Nordic Ski Club, with as­sis­tance from lo­cal spon­sors, had the per­fect fall day for the event this year.

Sunny skies but cool, crisp weather and oh yes quite a bit of wind. Nev­er­the­less, close to 90 peo­ple of all ages took part in the event.

The event runs along the Meni­hek Nordic Ski trail sys­tem, re­splen­dent this time of year with fall fo­liage. For many of the par­tic­i­pants who gath­ered at the lodge af­ter­wards for re­fresh­ments and medal pre­sen­ta­tions it was prob­a­bly one of the last times they would run over the trails in sneak­ers for a while. Many hop­ing the snow would fall in the not too dis­tant future, to give them an­other sea­son of some of Canada’s best cross coun­try ski trails.
