Record turnout at Pine Grove Run

Organizers weren’t completely sure of the exact number of runners who took part, but they’re sure it’s a record for the event.

At least 900 racers representing 14 Yukon schools took part in the annual Pine Grove Run hosted by Golden Horn School on May 12.

“We had over 900 registered, but it’s always a little different because someone might not show up and others do show up,” said organizer Fran Nyman. “It was massive — the biggest one yet.”

Pine Grove Run, which had about 750 runners the previous year, featured a 1.5-kilometre loop through the Pine Grove trails, with nine and over runner completing one lap and 10 and over completing two.

The event took place a week after Tantalus Community School hosted its 40th annual Carmacks Ridge Run, an event that saw a record 590 runners register.
