Road cycling

With the spring comes cycling in Terrace, with three road cycling events sponsored by the Terrace Off Road Cycling Association. The first is “The Kitimat River Challenge” Sunday, May 19 at 10 a.m. Cyclists start from the chain-up lane at Krumm Road and Hwy 37S and ride to the Tourist Info Centre just outside of Kitimat. Then it’s the Tour de Jackpine in June and the Skeena River Challenge in August.

Running

The 12th annual Skeena River Relay is set for May 25. The 140 km race starts in Prince Rupert at the Performing Arts Centre and ends at the Kitsumkalum Hall.

The third annual Kermode Kids Triathlon is coming up May 26 for kids age 8-15. It begins with $20 registration fee and bike drop off at the college and then swimming at the pool. The bike and run portions are at the college. After the swim, athletes drive back up to the college to complete the remaining two disciplines. Phone Crystal at 250-635-4632 or email lintons4@telus.net to register.
