We are putting the call out for nominations for a Volunteer of the Month Award. We want your nomination for a monthly award that we will be giving out to recognize volunteers that are involved with our event. They may have been volunteering for many years or new to the event.

The provincial capital on the southern tip of Vancouver Island offers kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, and hiking, and bills itself as “the cycling capital of Canada,” thanks to miles of paths and trails. So it’s no surprise that this active-person’s paradise hosts a marathon every October, when temps (usually in the 50s) are PR perfect.” [READ MORE]
