Englishman River Run takes place June 10

It's called a run, but there's no problem if you prefer to walk

A famlily friendly event, the River Run  five-kilometer walk or run along the trails in the Englishman River Regional Park will be held June 10.

MVIHES (Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society) will host the second annual River Run, a fundraising event for the society. MVIHES is a non-profit organization  that  works on conservation and restoration of habitat related to salmon including watersheds, estuaries and shorelines from Deep Bay to Lantzville.

The fun run will take place at the Englishman River Regional Park at the end of Allsbrook Road.  There are five kilometers of paths along the Englishman River close to the fish hatchery to enjoy and some trail running and walking for people to take part in. This is an excellent opportunity to come down to the regional park and experience the trails. The orange gate that typically blocks vehicular access will be opened for registered participants to drive down to the gravel pit and park. The gate will open at 9:30 a.m. and the race begins at 10 a.m. You can register for this event online at www.theriverrun.ca or at  www.runningroom.com under races in the month of June or you can register in person with the race director by e-mailing Deborah Nicol at annualriverrun@gmail.com.

The cost to register for adults is $30; seniors and students $20 until June 1, 2012.


The price is slightly more after June 1.  All Children under 14 years of age are free.
