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.
