Calling all Halifax runners. If you're in the downtown this morning and you happen to have your running gear, suit up to send off our yearly gift from Nova Scotia to Beantown, the Boston Common Christmas Tree. This year's tree is dedicated to the Boston Marathon and it needs a fitting escort - fast feet.

So throw on your santa hat and your Nikes, and let's ship this beauty out in style. Runners are asked to meet at the Grand Parade Square at 11:30AM.
