Red sea downtown for Boogie

Boogie the Bridge one-kilometre runners speed out of the gates Sunday morning.

Thousands of people filled Victoria Street in Kamloops Sunday morning for the 16th annual Daily News Boogie. These young runners took part in the one-kilometre run around downtown while many other runners and walkers ventured in to North Shore and Westsyde for the 5-kilometre, 10-kilometre or 21-kilometre routes. 

After a quick send-off to the half-marathon runners a warm-up 'boogie dance' was held at the main stage, which saw Mayor Peter Milobar and MLA Terry Lake join organizer Jo Berry and several others guide participants through a warm-up dance before sending the Mini Boogie runners on their way.

The Boogie began in 1998 as an all-women's event with 68 participants.
