The Linden Woods Fall Classic is back for its 10th year on Oct. 6, and it’s looking for runners.

"We want to pump up the spirit because it’s the 10th anniversary," said Cindy Epp, race director.

Funds raised will go towards charities in the community, helping École Van Walleghem School build a new playground, and 40% goes to breakfast programs in six different area schools in the Pembina Trails School Division.

"We typically have 350 to 400 people come out," said Epp. "Once we got our play structure, that was the initial reason for the race, we felt very, very lucky that we live in such a great neighbourhood and we have this beautiful park and we wanted to pay it forward."

The event includes a 10-kilometre, five-kilometre, and a four-kilometre family walk.

The cost to register online ranges from $18 to $28, depending on age and whether or not someone is a Manitoba Runners’ Association member. In-person registration is $5 more than the online cost. For more information, visit www.lwfc.ca or search for the Linden Woods Fall Classic on Facebook.
