For 41 years, students in Grade 4 and 5 from School District 43 elementary schools have run around Como Lake in Coquitlam for the glory of their school colours and rosettes to display in their entrance foyers. Last Wednesday and Thursday, more than 2,000 students from 43 schools participated in the rite of spring. The event is held to encourage student participation in running activities as well as to improve their physical fitness. But mostly it’s about cheering wildly for your friends and being careful not to drop the baton in the hand-off area.
