Holiday Hustle 5k/2k

Annual Christmas-themed run and walk event in Sechelt, with Santa hats for everyone, a ton of amazing draw prizes donated by local businesses, festive treats, hot chocolate and coffee, and live music! There’s even a dance-walk division. Start and finish near the Seaside Centre, with post-race festivities indoors.

Loon Lake Race

This is a beautiful trail run in Powell River, on a dead flat 13.2 km wheelchair accessible trail around the very edge of the lake. It starts and finishes at a Provincial Park campground where you can stay if you like to camp; a regional campground is a few kilometres away. For those wanting to run a shorter distance, there is the Anthony Island 7k — an out & back utilizing the last 3.5k of the full lake trail — again, dead flat. Proceeds will be donated to Special Olympics.
