Centennial Chocolate Chase revived for Sept. 1
June flooding chased The Centennial Chocolate Chase off the city’s Homecoming Festival Weekend schedule earlier this summer, but the event is scheduled anew for Sept. 1.
The non-competitive event will see participants get chocolate treats at the beginning and end of their three- or five-km walk/run.
It gets underway with registration at 8 a.m., with the run beginning at 9 a.m. at the Village Mall.
There is a $15 fee per participant.
Those interested can pre-register at Chocolates by Bernard Callebaut in Village Mall (across from Parkland Mall) or at the Red Deer Centennial Office at 4816 50th Ave.
The first 300 registered will receive a limited edition Chocolate Chase Tuberz. The registration deadline in Aug. 26.
Festivities will follow the run before another centennial event, Banners on the Bridge, takes place at 12:30 p.m. Registration forms are available at www.reddeer2013.ca.
