LifeMark Esquimalt 5K and Kid's 1K this Weekend: New Scenic Race Route; Last Chance to Register

March 14, 2013

Participants will be tackling a new and scenic course this Saturday, March 16th at the 6th Annual LifeMark Esquimalt 5km, a community event for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. Narrow, steep inclines have been swapped for wider trails along the shores of Saxe Point and Macaulay Parks. This creates more room for runners this weekend, and allows for the continued growth of the event.

Last chance to register! You can register for both the 5km and 1km Kids Fun Run by phone until Friday March 15th at 3 p.m. through the Esquimalt Recreation Centre front desk at 250-412-8500.
