T’Sou-ke First Nation members go running

Event will be a fun day for members of the Sooke band

The T’Sou-ke First Nation will be holding their third ISTA YA CONENET, which means, “Let’s Go Run,” event on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The event, said cultural advisor for the T’Sou-ke Arts Group, Linda Bristol, “is always a fun day.”

The T’Sou-ke invited some other first nations organizations to take part to get a variety of elders and youth. Each of the five-member teams participating will have both an elder, youth and the team captain who must be a member of the T’Sou-ke First Nation.

The event features a scavenger hunt and a race similar to  The Amazing Race with several stations. Their partners, including CRD Parks will have things participants will identify at their station, as will the Blue Raven Gallery, Lady Bug Garden, Sooke Fire Department and SEAPARC. Each of the stations will have items relevant to the sponsor. SEAPARC has an obstacle course outside and the Sooke Region Museum, which will have historical questions.

The event ends at the band hall where the Sooke RCMP will have a radar gun to clock the speed of kicked soccer balls. The all-day event will end with food and awards with trophies for first, second and third place.
