The Province helps us go retro

The Province coverageWhat is an event without some serious support from a local paper? Earlier this week, news editor Erik Rolfsen from The Province newspaper took an interest in our event and decided it was a good story. So good in fact, that in addition to today’s feature, the paper is going to print a selection of the winning photos in advance of the showcase in January. That’s right fellow marathoners! If you win one of our categories, chances are your photo will be printed in one of the biggest papers in British Columbia!

So pick up a copy of today’s Province (the Sunday edition), pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate and sit down to page A10 for a darn good read. Every single copy of the paper has been snapped up? No problem, you can find it online by clicking here.

Media support is paramount to get word of an event like this out to the masses and we are grateful to have The Province on board. A special thanks goes out to Erik for writing the piece and to photographer Arlen Redekop who had the challenging task of getting a shot of me without my usual dorkiness.
