The annual CANUSA Games torch run is set to make its way across the Canada-U.S. border.
Officials will gather outside Hamilton City Hall at 9 a.m. Wednesday to send off the torchbearers on their 337-km journey to Flint, Michigan.
This year’s torch run will be done with a combination of running and cycling.
Coordinator Mat Reid and nine triathletes from the Hamilton Hammerheads will do an 8k run from City Hall to Dundas and then cycle to Flint-Genesee County.
The final leg of the six-stage torch journey will be a 5k run from the Flint city limits to the opening ceremonies at Atwood Stadium.
The 62nd anniversary of the CANUSA Games will be held from August 9 to 11 in Flint-Genesee County.
The international sporting competition is based on the foundation of friendship.
