It is with extremely heavy hearts we must share with you the sudden passing of a member of our BLT Running family, Chris Morrison.
On May 2, 10 days before his 47th birthday, Chris crossed his final finish line. Then in one last act of kindness he gave the ultimate gift of organ donation. This selfless act, befitting of Chris, saved and improved countless lives and brings peace and comfort to his family and loved ones during an unimaginable time.
Chris was among the first to join BLT Runners upon its inception in 2016. After 7 marathons Chris became heavily involved in trail running, completing the Capes 50 km ultra event in 2019 and training for his first 100-mile event which was to be held this summer.
Chris was a positive and encouraging force to all who knew him. His gentle nature, dedication, kindness, and humour were unmatched.
Chris leaves behind his beloved wife, Karol Ann, his two cherished children Kellyn and Grant, his father Connie, brothers Paul and Peter, extended family, and a lifetime of friends. Please take a moment to read Chris’ obituary at:
