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.
