For 17 years, Hunter Brothers Farm in Florenceville-Bristol N.B. have created massive corn field mazes and this season's may be the most impressive.

From the air, the giant crop shows the form of Terry Fox on his Marathon of Hope, celebrating the 35th anniversary of the historic run.

Chip Hunter says forming the 2.5-hectare corn maze took more than a year of planning.

"We decided to pay tribute to the 35th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope and because he ran by our house and we met him," he said.

The farm has partnered with the Terry Fox Foundation. The annual maze is opening later than it has in the past due to slow growing conditions this summer. Nonetheless, farmer Shelley Hunter says it was been worth it.

"The first thing it takes is inspiration and the second thing is perspiration. So the inspiration part, we like to keep a Canadian theme if we can and we also like to make it educational," he said.

The maze will also serve as a scavenger hunt. Trivia questions about Terry Fox will lead visitors to the end.

The maze opens in Florenceville-Bristol on September 15 and runs until Halloween.
