The 33rd Annual Resolution Run witnessed over 12,000 participants in 52 locations across Canada and the United States brave the relatively chilly to extremely cold temperatures this year. St. John’s overcame snow flurries, Toronto’s event staff shoveled 700 metres of a side loop to clear the way, and Abbotsford came together and sanded an alternate route after a treacherous ice storm. In a great show of perseverance, participants battled the elements together and crossed the finish line with frosty faces and high spirits. This year, a 1K race was added so that eager young children could run a race of their own.
Volunteers, event staff, and community members made this event all the warmer with their encouragement along the route, and indoor refreshments awaited the participants after the race. Despite the cold, the Resolution Run was a wonderful way to finish 2017 and bring in 2018.
