The 8th annual Melfort Multi-k is just over a week away.
Next Saturday at 8:30 in the morning, opening ceremonies will get the event underway.
Organizer Lyle Bitman said it’s not too late to get involved.
“We’ve got a lot of people signed up already but we could always use a few more, we are looking for race marshals, we need about 5 or 6 more people,” said Bitman. “We’ll set you up on a corner just so you can help direct traffic and make sire the course is nice and safe for all of the participants.”
Bitman also said they hope residents along the race will help out with cheering on participants while Rotary Park is another area that spectators can set up for the morning.
Opening ceremonies is followed by a warm-up and then the kids race and 5 and 10k races follow.
Registrations are open until September 19th at melfortmultik.ca.
The Scotiabank 1k race is sold out.
