From the ashes of the Surrey International World Music Marathon rises a shorter race that organizers say will also invigorate the community.

Beats on the Streets is a 10-km race hitting North Surrey this fall.

The previous marathon was sidelined because some of the emergency routes for the nearby hospital proved difficult to work around.

The Beats on the Streets 10K will be run through the west side of King George Boulevard in North Surrey.

Elizabeth Model, chair of the Surrey Marathon Society, said Thursday the race encourages costumes and dress-up and corporate teams.

It will also include a 5-km run/walk event and will have a music theme, as the marathon did.

All fund raising that occurs will benefit the Surrey Firefighters Charitable Society.
