More than 100 participants took part in the Second Annual Horsefly Fun Run Saturday.

The event, a 10-kilometre ride, walk or run, kicked off at the Millar Road boat launch in Horsefly.

This year, there was a lovely new portion added to the course, following along the salmon spawning channel and Horsefly River before crossing the bridge and sprinting for the finish line.

Congratulations to everyone who participated on a lovely sunny day.

First-place male runner went to Anthony Jeffery, while the first-place female runner was Deanne Rife.

In the youth division, Gabrielle Pierce finished in first place.

Afterwards, the Seniors Activity Group provided a delicious lunch. The Horsefly 4-H Club manned the water stations along the way.

Many people from the community volunteered directing traffic and timing the event, among multiple other tasks.

Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible.
