Keen observers have noticed the Flaman Man is missing from his post in north Edmonton.

He has been a Yellowhead Trail landmark for the past 13 years, constantly in motion and changing outfits with the seasons.

And all is well with the popular running man, according to Jason Samograd, Flaman's regional manager of fitness.

"People are asking where he is, what happened to him, all kinds of jokes and memes," Samograd told CTV News Edmonton.

"He's in the shop for repairs and a wardrobe change and should be back up by the weekend."Flaman has more than 10 running men up on treadmills at locations around the country.
