It's coming up--the 84th annual Fire Fighters Ten Mile Road Race is on Monday.
This week we're speaking with participants who've made it their own tradition.
Like always, Thunder Bay's Jon Balabuck will be there.
He says 1998 was his first run and he hasn't missed one since.
Balabuck attributes the success of the event to the many participants and volunteers who get behind it.
He says runners can sense the hype and anticipation.
Balabuck adds it's become a yearly staple for the running community. (Photo supplied)
