Bathurst's HR director and friend complete run from Bathurst to Miramichi

Imagine running the equivalent of two back-to-back marathons in the same day.

Bathurst HR director Jamie DeGrace and his friend Bruno Hache did just that on Friday.

Shortly after 6 a.m., the pair set off running from the Bathurst city limits to Miramichi to recognize how the two cities have united through fellowship, cooperation and a good will to serve.

They reached the Miramichi city limits shortly after 1 p.m. Friday.

DeGrace says his vision is to create synergy so leaders of the two municipalities can continue to build on their relationship while pursuing common goals towards enhancing their communities.
