News in Brief: Mt Robson Marathon cancelled

The Yellowhead Outdoor Recreation Association (YORA) has made the decision to cancel this year’s Mt. Robson Marathon slated for September 12th along the Berg Lake Trail. YORA President Patricia Thoni said it was a hard decision. “They were talking about all events in summer, but we’re so close to summer and really the beginning of September is considered summer, and with everything going on we thought let’s cancel.”

She said they had 250 people signed up, roughly half of their capacity. They are now issuing refunds through the Running Room booking system, minus the $2 booking fee collected by the site. Thoni said it’s a big chunk of money YORA will forfeit, but they will be able to pull through.
