Victoria Big Wild Challenge - 12/21km Trail Run

Test your limits with a 12km or 21km trail run along the rugged Coast Trail in East Sooke Regional Park.  Afterwards join us for a Celebration in the Park with yoga, games and a BBQ. Are up for the challenge?

Sunday, August 10th
East Sooke Regional Park, Vancouver Island

    
      

Why is this important?

Canada has some amazing wilderness – from grand watersheds to majestic forests to vast oceans – and the only way to keep these spaces accessible and intact is to protect them and show our support for their existence.

How does my challenge help?

In two ways: committing to a challenge shows your support for Canada’s wild spaces, and the funds you raise go to CPAWS conservation campaigns to protect Canada’s at-risk wilderness. CPAWS is Canada’s leading public wilderness conservation charity. Find out more.

How do I raise money?

Once you register your challenge, ask your family, friends, or colleagues to support you with a donation through your Big Wild Challenge page.
