It was a perfect day for fun and fitness on Sunday, June 1 in downtown Ashcroft. Close to 80 Runners, Walkers and Rollers participated in the 4th annual Skip’s Run On the River event.
The Ashcroft & District Lion’s Club did a wonderful job of putting on their Charity Run which locals and visitors from near and far enjoyed. A good many families participated in the event as well as RunClub friends, school friends and individuals.
As runners, walkers and bikers finished, they stayed to cheer on anyone and everyone coming across the finish line. Everyone was on the same team and whether you were the one who finished at the front or somewhere else, it all felt great!

Skip’s Run On the River honours the late Skip Stuart, a long-time Lion’s member who we remember as a wonderful and generous man. Funds raised, go back into our communities to worthy projects such as providing medical equipment for needy children, providing funds for local sports teams, providing life saving equipment for first responders and more.
Thank you to our sponsors and to all of you who participated and made this wonderful! Mark your calendar for the first Sunday in June of next year’s 5th annual Skip’s Run On the River! Tie your running shoes and we’ll see you there!
