Volunteers needed for Sooke River 10K

The race is expected to attract 500 runners from across Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland and the Gulf Islands

Volunteers are needed for the Sooke River 10K Race, taking place Feb. 5.

Starting and finishing at Edward Milne Community School, the race is expected to attract 500 runners from across Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland and the Gulf Islands.

“The Victoria Marathon Society will host the race but it needs local participation  to make this event successful,” said local organizer Mark Ziegler.

“[The race] raises the profile of our community and provides an opportunity to meet new and interesting people.  Some dandy refreshments will be served after the race.”

The Sooke River 10K  is one of eight races in the Vancouver Island Race Series, which begins Jan. 8 in Saanichton.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mark Ziegler at 250-642-5784 or markziegler@shaw.ca.
