Run For A Cause At the Oak Bay Half Marathon

Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan is proud to be a charity partner of the Oak Bay Half Marathon run.

Registration for the 2022 Oak Bay Half Marathon is now open. Presented by Virgin Radio and Frontrunners, the race date is Sunday, May 29 and includes a half marathon, 10K, a four-person relay and a 1km kids run. All the races start and finish in Windsor Park in the heart of Victoria’s Oak Bay.

The event was cancelled in 2020 and in 2021 there was a virtual option. “After a two-year hiatus we are thrilled to be hosting an in-person event,” says event manager, Nick Walker. “We had a successful virtual event in 2021 but nothing can replace the atmosphere of a live race, or the energy created by running in a crowd with spectators and volunteers cheering you on.”

Over 1,500 participants are expected to take part in the event, which attracts runners and walkers from Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. “We will be working diligently with the District of Oak Bay and following all PHO guidelines to ensure a safe and fun event for everyone and look forward to hosting one of the premiere running events in Western Canada,” adds Walker.

Fees are currently $60 for the Half Marathon, $30 for the 10K, $120 for the relay and $10 for the kids run.
