Westwood run all set for Saturday

Westwood Lake Park will again be the venue for the annual Run for the Mountain 6K run/walk this Saturday (Sept. 15).

It’s Nanaimo’s favourite place to run, and also Nanaimo’s favourite place to race. Scenic Westwood Lake Park will again be the venue for the annual Run for the Mountain 6K run/walk this Saturday (Sept. 15).

The run benefits Nanaimo and Area Land Trust’s Mount Benson Wilderness Park project, and also determines the King and Queen of Westwood every year.

Race-day registration will be held from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at the lake, leading up to the 9 a.m. start time.

Race director Mike Thibodeau said registration is going great, and hopes that considering the favourable weather forecast for Saturday, Run for the Mountain might pack the lake.
