A plentiful harvest at Blueberry Run
It might have been the perfect day for the 2014 running of the Blueberry Harvest Run in Harbour Grace on Sept. 28. The sun was shining, a slight wind and cool temperatures meant runners would not overheat on the 10-kilometre road race that began and ended at S.W. Moores Memorial Stadium in Harbour Grace. Some 200 runners of all ages and experience took part in the 31st running of the popular event. Ninety-four of those runners were schoolaged children from schools in Carbonear, Harbour Grace and North River. The Compass was there and grabbed these images of the hotly contested event.
These runners, from left, Dylan Whalen (St. Francis), Reid Deering (Carbonear Academy), Ben Ryan (Carbonear Academy) and Jacob Kennedy (Carbonear Academy) were just a few of the young runners taking part.
All Hallows’ Damian Laundry completed the three kilometre run for school-aged athletes with a time of 13 minutes and 38 seconds.
