Relaxing after a hike up to Peden Lake and a swim.

Hike, swim, and potluck with friends ... what else could be better?

The Sooke Trail and Road Runners held their second Tom Burgess Memorial event on July 8 in honour of their late former president and founding member. Almost 30 people hiked up to Peden Lake. A number of hikers took to the lake to cool off. After the hike home, the group headed to a great potluck social. Thank you to Jackie and Danny for hosting!

The Sooke Trail and Road Runners (STARR) running club invites all runners and would-be runners to attend “Why Do We Run?” on Tuesday, January 24th, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, at EMCS.

The evening will have presentations on four topics:

·        Why do we run?

·        Physical benefits of running

·        Competition/racing

·         Adventure/fun in running

A discussion at the end of the evening will allow attendees to share their experiences and ideas.

“Why Do We Run?” is being held as a follow-up to Frontrunners’ Nick Walker’s very useful and well attended “Let’s Talk Running” session at EMCS last January.

There will be no charge for this event.  Coffee, tea and water will be offered as refreshments.

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Kent at 250-642-2287.
