Racing against the clock

Parks Canada trail crew members (left to right) Carolyn Schellenberg, Claire Sieber and Ehren Eddy set a heart-pumping pace along Mount Revelstoke National Park’s Meadows in the Sky Parkway on June 15 as part of their annual fire fitness test. With 22kg (45lb.) backpacks, they had to walk 4.83 km (3 miles) in 45 minutes. All completed the distance within the allotted time. The seven-member trail crew can be called upon to help fight fires in the park. Murray Christman photo courtesy of Parks Canada
