Vancouver Island is a really special place. It’s filled with gorgeous colour, from lush greens to bright colours, from the clear blue sky to the dark, rolling waters of the Georgia Strait. The pace of Vancouver Island is a bit more relaxed than you’re used to, but never BORING – there’s always something to do! And there’s no better time to visit than the spring!


How are you doing on that New Year’s Resolution? Are you making good on your goal to get in shape, or have you been letting it slide?

We’re not here to shame anybody for what they haven’t done, but if you ARE looking for a way to kick-start a healthy new you, then you should participate in the Times Colonist 10K Run! This annual fundraiser is a great way to get out and see the beautiful sites that surround Victoria, on a gorgeous route that traces through downtown Victoria and into the scenic countryside surrounding it!

Vancouver Island really is a paradise for runners, not only because it’s beautiful (and it is very, very beautiful) but because the temperate sea breezes mean that Victoria is never too hot, or too cold. You’ll find yourself running for longer comfortably than you’d ever imagined!

10K a little too ambitious? Don’t worry, you can participate in the Thrifty’s Foods Family Fun Run, a 1.5 KM trek through downtown Victoria that encourages you and your kids to get and get active together!

Both races take place April 29, starting at Government and Belleville! Come on out, have fun, and get back on track for your 2018 fitness goals in style!

Looking for a convenient place to stay for your Vancouver Island adventure? The Quality Inn Waddling Dog Victoria is located close to both the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal and the Victoria Airport, so you can get yourself situated and get out exploring as soon as possible! Comfy beds, great service and adorable Tudor style rooms mean you should book your stay today
