The Georgian Bay Coyotes have checked off another milestone as they covered the 757km trek from Regina, Saskatchewan, last weekend and arrived in Calgary, Alberta, on Sunday, June 14, on their virtual run across Canada.
After leaving Regina on Monday, June 8, they ventured through Moose Jaw and Swift Current, SK, before entering Alberta. They then swept passed Medicine Hat before finishing their Calgary leg after only eight weeks.
“To date the Coyotes have logged 6,520km from when they first dipped their running shoes in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of St. John’s, Newfoundland,” noted team coach Kevin Hooper. “Next stop is Vancouver, BC., a bit longer trip of 973km. This may take us ten days to get there, but if everyone steps up to the challenge, it is possible to be there by this coming weekend on June 21. From here it is only a short skip to our goal of Victoria, a whole 4-6 weeks ahead of schedule!”
