Nanaimo Bar Trail Run or Walk

It’s coming back again this year! We have a kick-off event during the Nanaimo Festival, on March 24, where we’ll do a Nanaimo Bar Trail Run event in the morning (9:30am) and a Nanaimo Bar Trail Walk event in the afternoon (2pm).

Here are the details:

    Where: Meet at the Diana Krall Plaza and we’ll run or walk from there and return there too.
    When: March 24, 2017 (rain or shine) 9:30am for the runners and 2pm for the runners.
    Who: Runners or walkers – at the appropriate time – on your own, with a friend, with family, with a well-behaved dog, or with kid in a stroller.
    Cost: $8 per person, except kids in strollers and dogs (please register and pay in advance)
    What: Guided run/walk, tour, Nanaimo Bar and a beverage, e.g. coffee or tea
