Besides a beautiful nature with stunning mountain views I have to say that
the Canadian people are something else:
I have only on a few stretches and countries (Finland, Siberia and
Australia) met helpfulness and friendship like here!! Simply amazing, and
makes the hardship of the run worth while :-)
Example: in Kamloops we were accommodated in the house of Wayne &
Lindsey. They own a local running store - The Runners sole - and insisted
in presenting Peter and I new pairs of running shoes (Asics, top of the
line models), new socks etc.!!
Further our contacts together with our master-planner in Canada, Kevin
Thompson, had set up media coverage: a radio interview and two newspapers.
Canada certainly is worth a long run ... :-)
