Saskatoon hosts annual Bridge City Boogie race
The streets of Saskatoon are going to be lined with people on Sunday, but they'll all be moving at their own pace.
It's the sixth annual Bridge City Boogie and this year, there are more participants than ever.
"We're up to 5,800 participants this year which makes us Saskatchewan's largest wellness event, it's just fabulous," said event and sponsorship chair Craig Peterson.
The event will have participants at all different levels from walkers, to runners, to elite runners.
"It's a two kilometer, it's a five kilometer, it's a 10 kilometer, it's competitive or non-competitive ... it doesn't matter, it's fabulous," he said.
The event isn't just about exercising. Registration fees from the participants go to several groups throughout Saskatoon.
"Last year we raised $126,000. That was to the Crisis Nursery, the Boys and Girls Club of Saskatoon, the Children's Festival and the Raise a Reader program," said Peterson.
The Bridge City Boogie begins at 8:30 a.m., starting and ending at Griffith's Stadium.
