Runners to carry on the tradition of the Man-A-Mile Race
Some people in Niagara will be spending a part of their Thanksgiving weekend running in one of the country's oldest relay races.
Teams will line the route between Old Fort George in Niagara-On-The-Lake and Oakes Park in Niagara Falls on Thanksgiving Monday for the Man-A-Mile Race.
Members will pass the baton to a teammate at the beginning of each mile all in the name of raising funds for Bridges for Autism.
This marks the race's 98th year.
The Man-A-Mile Race began in the 1920's with just two teams: one from Niagara Falls and the other from St. Catharines.
Organizers say they have witnessed 'unprecedented growth' over the years.
The race begins at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Monday.
