CENTRAL OKANAGAN - Drivers in Kelowna’s North End should be on the lookout this weekend for participants in the inaugural Hard Knox run.

The 12-kilometre course starts at the base of Knox Mountain on Sunday morning, Sept. 20, and goes down Ellis Street before turning onto the Waterfront pathways, according to a City of Kelowna press release.

Runners will return the same way but then head down Poplar Point Drive to Paul’s Tomb in Knox Mountain Park before heading back to the the start-finish area.

There will be single-lane alternating traffic along Poplar Point Drive between 9 and 10 a.m. The lower parking lot of Knox Mountain Park will be closed from 6 to 11 a.m., although on-street parking will be available.

Knox Mountain Park will remain open, however park users are urged to use caution and watch for runners on the area roads.

You can visit the city’s roadways report for the lastest information on this and other events.
