Yellow Ribbon Prison Run 2015 [5:11 am]
The 24-hr PSI at 5 am, reads at 106 to 124 PSI and the 3-hr PSI reads at 147. This PSI reading still falls within the unhealthy range.

As much as we would like the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run to take place, our participants’ safety is of utmost importance to us.
In its place, the 6km walk will still be available for participants, provided the PSI readings stay within acceptable levels. The 6km route takes you through our Happily Ever After Running Trail, which includes scenic and historical prison sites.
Our Carnival will also include many interesting and meaningful activities for everyone to enjoy. Look out for a special performance by the Philharmonic Winds and inmate performers or explore our Rehab fair to find out more on how you can help in the reintegration efforts of ex-offenders. Show your support for ex-offenders and help us build The Road To Acceptance.
For your safety, we will continue to monitor the haze conditions. If you’re feeling uncomfortable or have any heart or respiratory problems, please take it slow and avoid strenuous activity. For further assistance, please approach a Road Marshall who will be able to assist you.
