Stage 10
Upper Kent to Edmundston

The East team was up early once again to begin the tenth day of our journey from Upper Kent to St. Hilaire, New Brunswick. The day was hot and sticky as the thermometer hit a new high but the runners did not give up and rufused to stop until completion of the day’s planned route.

The team first passed through Perth-Andover during the cooler morning hours and witnessed the Andover Bridge over the calm and glistening waters of the Saint John River that reflected the village above. As the mercury rose, the team reached the township of Grand Falls; the local population cheered them on and gave many waves and smiles as they passed through. Donations were given by the local population and we would like to thank the people of Grand Falls for their warm welcome. Many of them had already heard about the run before the team had arrived from a local CTV television station.

As the team continued along the Saint John River, they caught a glimpse of our southerly neighbours in Maine, USA. Entering the township of Edmundston, the group was once again warmly greeted by the locals with many waves and honks. Several individuals from the local population approached the runners and volunteers with donations and we would also like to thank them as it was greatly appreciated by the group.
The East team looks forward to tomorrow as we leave the maritime provinces and start our journey down the St. Lawrence in Qu├ębec, not to mention the one extra hour of sleep!

    Very cool. You guys should post the number of km covered each day, as people not familiar with Canada have no idea. It would also be nice to see a list of the runner’s names as well. Congrats again on a successful run!
