The Cobequid Trail Run Committee will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Cobequid Trail Run on Aug. 24.

The run consists of a 5k, 10K and a half marathon. With great success in the past years, the hope is to attract just as many runners this year.

Running has great health benefits and helps with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So why not meet your new fitness goals by trying something new and make this your first annual Cobequid Trail run?

If you haven’t experienced the Cobequid Trail, give it a try. It has a beautiful and historic scenic route with so much to take in along the way.

Registration is now open for the Cobequid Trail Run. It can be found online at www.atlanticchip.com or by contacting recreation@colchester.ca. Race fees are as follows:  RNS members $28, youths $20 and non-members $30. T-shirts with the new logo will be available for all runners along with a grab bag containing race information.

Colchester Bike Week 2014 had another successful year and it’s great to see such a turnout and how it helps with keeping Active Transportation alive.

Along with riding a bike comes “being green,” which means caring for the environment.

A big thank you to everyone who participated, including those supporters who came out to help promote cycling in the community. Remember to keep practicing bicycle safety and have a safe and fun summer.

Want to try something new? Pickleball players have a new opportunity to enjoy their sport at the Cougar Dome on Friday mornings from 9 to 11 a.m. beginning July 11. The drop-in cost is $5 per player. A limited number of rackets are available, so players are asked to bring their own if possible.

Also, evening pickleball drop-ins continue at Douglas Street Recreation Centre on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. throughout July and August. The drop-in is free, but donations are accepted to help grow the sport in the area. Rackets, balls and nets are provided. And, for newcomers, there are usually experienced players on hand to help you get started.

For more information, contact Jennifer Richards at 902-897-3185, jrichards@colchester.ca, www.colchester.ca.
