Race for the Prize: Sparks Street Edition

Today I had the pleasure of helping out at a 50-yard race down Sparks Street to promote the upcoming Amethyst Women’s Addiction Centre Track Challenge (an event I’ve previously discussed). The race pitted a number of Olympic hopefuls against local business leaders and the Mayor. For fun, we’ll experiment with telling stories with pictures.

It’s remarkable how readily people obey pylons, even if it is just some dudes setting them up.

Racers, at the starting line.

The winner? The Mayor.

Post race, the Mayor basks in victory.
