Running club hosts open house

The Bastion Running Club is literally hosting an open house in the great, wide open.

The club’s open house takes place 9 a.m. Saturday (Nov. 26) at Westwood Lake Park.

Formed in 1981 in Nanaimo to promote healthy living, the club is dedicated to the sport of running both recreational and competitive.

Over the years, running has evolved in Nanaimo and many people staying engaged and active. Bastion has adapted and worked hard to find ways to both encourage and support this large running community.

The club collaborates with a variety of community organizations and also leads a number of creative events for its members including a Saturday morning run and social breakfast, Tuesday night mystery runs and the New Year’s Day run and dip at Westwood Lake.

Bastion also hosts the Cedar 12 K run as part of the Island Race Series.

Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to Saturday’s open house to learn more about the club and enjoy some refreshments.

Yearly membership in the club is $10 per individual, or $20 per family.
