Coquitlam firefighters taking a run to promote Firefit
A group of Coquitlam Fire and Rescue smoke-eaters are promoting the Firefit challenge by going for a run.
For 10 km, with thousands of other people.
And wearing 30 kg of gear.
The Coquitlam firefighters will be taking part in the Vancouver Sun Run, jogging the course in full turnout gear.
The second annual Firefit challenge will be held May 7 in the Tri-Cities and firefighters from across the country are expected to turn out for what has been called the toughest two minutes in sports.
Firefit consists of emergency workers wearing their full equipment as they make their way through a vigourous obstacle course designed to mimic emergency situations.
Proceeds from the event, which will feature a 50/50 draw, beer garden, barbecue area, and silent auction, will go to the Coquitlam Firefighters Charitable Society.
