Racing Through the Woods

The Bezanson Bog, the local cross-country race held at the Old Bezanson Townsite, has became a huge community event for the hamlet and surrounding areas over the past 9 years. Racers from all over, including Peace River, Tumbler Ridge, Grande Cache and Valleyview, all came to run the muddy trail and try to conquer Buffalo Hill (a steep climb alongside the fence on the north end, which was not used in some of the previous years). This event has become very popular, but for now, it will have to come to an end.
