To honour longtime Fort St. John ultra-marathon runner and swim coach Steve Sadownik, the 
organizers of the Vertical Slam

Ultimate Challenge are putting on the Friends of Steve Sadownik Memorial Run.

It will be an annual event at the Fish Creek Community Forest trails. The first run will take place 
June 15, and go from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.

To register for the event, go here.

Runners can do as many laps of the trail as they please, and aren't required to run or be there for 
the full 12 hours. Proceeds will go towards the cost of a memorial bench in Sadownik's name.

The idea was in part based off the run that was held last year in Sadownik's honour after he died.
