Girls' running group hits PG streets

A group of girls aged 10 to 15 dons running shoes and hits the streets in Fort George park every Tuesday and Thursday to train to a five kilometre race. They call themselves the Pavement Princesses.

The RCMP's Victim Services and Community Policing unit organized the club, which combines physical activity with talks on issues like bullying and drug and alcohol use.

Daybreak's Marissa Harvey joined the princesses for a run in the park and brought us the story of one runner, 12-year old Mackenzie Foster.
