Denman Island’s 2011 annual 8.5-kilometre Blackberry Run/Walk takes place Sept. 4.
The race starts and ends at the Denman Community Hall, a five-minute walk from the Denman ferry terminal.
On race day, catch the 9 a.m. ferry at Buckley Bay, as the race starts at 9:45 a.m.
Pre-register by Aug. 24 to secure a tech shirt with this year’s fun new design produced by Capewell Design. You cannot be guaranteed a shirt if you register on race day.
Up to Aug. 24, the cost of the run/walk is $5 or $30 with a shirt. Registration on race day adds $5 to both run and shirt cost.
Forms are available at running stores on Vancouver Island or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 250-335-1372.
Refreshments will be available following the run, as well as a random draw with many prizes, including a one-night stay for two at the Denman Island Guesthouse.
All proceeds from the run are donated to breast cancer research.
