STARR runners

STARR runners shine in spite of fog

Three times a week, the STARR runners get out to shine in Sooke.

STARR runners, from left to right, Jackie Eddy, Steve Kent, Mark Ziegler, Amanda Johnston, Claude Laforce, Tory Van Ek, Vince Trahan and Tom Burgess. They meet three times a week, 6 p.m. on Tuesdays at SEAPARC, and again at 6 p.m Thursday and 9 a.m. Saturdays just outside of the Sooke News Mirror office (across from Sooke Health and Fitness).

“Everyone is welcome to join us for a run – generally a run is about an hour, sometimes less and Saturdays usually the longer run,” said runner Jackie Eddy. “We have speedies, medium and slower runners and do a mix of road and trail, and we have FUN!”

STARR stands for Sooke Trail and Road Runners, and they have a Facebook fan page at https://www.facebook.com/SookeTrailandRoadRunners. Check them out if you want to shine (glistening with sweat) along with them.
