The wheels are in motion to bring back the Fort St. John outhouse races.

Event organizers are in the preliminary stages of returning the event to the city. They have recently submitted a letter to the City, requesting the approval to close certain roads for the races.

During previous years, the races took place on 100 Ave between 100 Street and 102 Street.

Organizers say they are hopeful the city will respond positively to their requests, which would result in the first Outhouse Race in 15 years.

The projected summer race date will be Friday, July 8 and updates on the event will be reported when the information presents itself.
