Remembering Chris Morrison

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:

The Chris Morrison Memorial Fund has been established to support student leaders with a joy for life graduating from Sydney Academy who will be attending St. FX University. Any donation, large or small, will go towards honouring a man who made those around him want to do better. Donations can be e-transferred to: CGMMemFund@eastlink.ca.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update 2

MONRUN:

After careful deliberation we have decided to temporarily cancel BLTR MonRuns until further notice. We encourage all members to continue with BLTR Virtual MonRuns, adding the hashtag #BLTvrun to your post on the BLTR Members Facebook Group. But, let’s make things more interesting, shall we? From your posts in the member group, we will choose a photo each week to feature on the BLTR Instagram and main BLTR Facebook page. Put on your creative thinking caps!

Social Distancing on the Trails:

Now that the warmer weather is here and many are looking to the outdoors to relieve stress, social distancing on the trails can be difficult. If running with another person, please adhere to social distance measures (6 feet apart). When approaching other trail users please pivot to single file so all can maintain a safe distance. We recognize other trail users may not be doing this but we can do our part.

If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of the board. Let’s stay active, stay healthy, stay 6 feet apart and #washyourhands!

Sincerely,

Craig Durling
