Forty trail enthusiasts headed out on Sunday, June 3 for a run/walk to raise funds for the Langford Walking Trail. People from nine different families, as well as 13 individuals  participated.

Their efforts raised $315 for the Langford Trails, after expenses, plus the prize money for the poker derby winners.

One of the participants, Darryl Gerrard of Neepawa said. “This was a great event to develop awareness of the Langford trail and help raise funds for its maintenance. We were very happy to have 40 people and four dogs participate. We have still not yet received the final number of wood tics that also participated in the run.”

The Langford Trail is being used more and more each year by people who want to experience nature at its finest and stay fit at the same time.
