Esquimalt 5K presented by LabHealth Physio
Notice to our inspiring participants:
First and foremost, we hope you and your families are staying safe and well.
We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Esquimalt 5K with 1K Kid's Run. All clients will be refunded in full. Your patience is appreciated as our team processes these refunds as quickly as possible.
While we are connecting, we would like to echo remarks from the Province of British Columbia's Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, "Stay connected while staying distant." While as a community the Esquimalt 5K with 1K Kid's Run might not be taking place this year, the current recommendations from the Health Authority encourage you to get outdoors while keep 1-2 metres between others. Should you wish to participate in your own 5K using a tool like Map My Run we encourage you to do so. If you get out and participate in your own 5K, we'd love you to let us know about it: if posting photos to social media, we encourage you to tag us and use the hashtag #Esq5K #wereinthistogether
As a means to help our valued community stay connected while staying distant, we will be posting interactive content on our social media channels in the coming days and we hope you'll be a part of the fun and dialog there. If you have not already connected with us, our active channels are:
We would also like to take this opportunity who recognize local businesses who were also key partners in this event:
