A message from MRA member Gordon Flett:
Jean-Christophe Renaud is currently running across Canada as part of an initiative called Cours Pour Ta Vie (Run For Your Life) http://www.courspourtavie.ca/en/ to raise awareness for healthy living. There was another runner with him who had to drop out so he is currently running alone, with Michael Houle driving the support vehicle. They will be arriving in Winnipeg early on Saturday morning and would be very grateful to have the company of some Winnipeg runners as they make their way across the city. The first rendezvous point will be at the Southdale Shopping Centre parking lot by the Shoppers Drug Mart at the corner of Fermor and Beaverhill at 9 AM. The route would be up the Niakwa Trail, then up Osborne and along Jubilee past The Bridge Drive-In. The next rendezvous will be at Stride Ahead Sports in the Grant Park Shopping Centre at 11 AM. Eventually they want to end up in Oak Bluff. JC would love to meet and run with members of the Winnipeg running community. So if anyone can come out for even a few kilometers that would be awesome!
