PARKSVILLE — From the desk of Rod Bailey a reminder Oceanside Running Club is starting up it’s long running Orca Learn to Run progam.

Start date is Tuesday, March 27 at 6 p.m. with everyone meeting in the Springwood Middle School parking lot.

“We try to run the program at least once a year depending on interest,” said Bailey, who will be overseeing the program for the fourth time.

According to Bailey, “this is a 0-5 km program. It will take you from walking and running for 30 minutes the first week, to running a full 30 minutes in a 13 week period.

There will be homework (and) with the help from the group we will try to get everyone to the 30 minute run and then their first 5 K.”
