Women's Pace reuniting for run

Women are encouraged to keep up the pace at a run/walk this coming weekend.

Women’s Pace is holding a reunion Sunday (Oct. 21) in the north end. The group has been around for 13 years.

“For a lot of women, everything changed when they started running. You can see it, looking around Nanaimo, how many women run,” said Donna Melville, one of the group’s founders. “So we’re going to try to get everybody to come back together and have a reunion.”

And for Women’s Pace, appropriate reunion attire is running gear and sneakers, not a dress and high heels.

The eight-kilometre run or 5km walk starts at 9 a.m. at Frontrunners on Turner Road, following race-day registration at 8:30 a.m. Frontrunners will have breakfast ready at the finish line.

Cost to participate is $10, with proceeds going to Haven Society. For more information, please call 250-713-9453 or 250-754-7637.
