TRU students in the Cross Country Running program will be able to tap into bursaries next year thanks to a partnership with the Kamloops Marathon.

Organizers announced today a portion of the proceeds will go to to help students in the Cross Country Running program, which typically goes September to mid-November of each year.

The Kamloops Marathon is scheduled for July 28-29 and will also feature distances of 5km, 10km, and a half marathon.
