Cosa farete

We'll meet at the parking lot of a beautiful regional park (I can also provide transportation for a minimum of 2 people within Victoria) and walk a short distance to a beach where there are washroom facilities. Here I will explain the details of the running route, what to expect along the way in terms of running surfaces and terrain, and distances to key points and photo stops (you'll want to capture the many spectacular lake and mountain views!)

Our run begins with an easy (and mostly flat!) lakeshore trail before branching out to include a variety of beautiful west coast terrains. Runners will love the delightful, undulating single track technical trails that weave through the forest and moss-covered meadows. The trail will wind through stands of Arbutus, Douglas fir, Garry Oak, a variety of flora and hidden vistas that open to rocky knolls and scenic mountain and lake views that only locals will know.

The run will last one hour, and will include a total of 20 minutes of uphill running, with the remainder being flat or downhill. We'll stop for pictures and a water/stretch break at several scenic vistas. We'll end the run at the lakeside (by the washroom facilities), then walk a short distance back to the parking lot to cool down.
Other things to note
Please note: I can pick you up, or meet you at the start of the run.
Be sure to email me 24 hours in advance of your run if you require transportation. Please indicate your running level (beginner, intermediate, advanced-with average run distances) so I can plan a route to best suit your ability.

Welcome to Victoria, the Running Mecca of Canada!

As a long time local of this beautiful city, Michael was probably running before he was born. He has raced everything from track and cross country, to relays, road races and marathons. However his love of running is not about racing so much as exploring... the joy of discovering what lies around the next corner, over the next hill, down the next lane. Michael is an experienced running coach, and has degrees in Human Performance and Chiropractic. Let his passion for running and intimate knowledge of the best trail and road routes in the Victoria area help you create a truly memorable running experience!

Dove ti troverai

Our runs explore the multitude of intertwining trails that only locals know at Thetis Lake Regional Park. As a local and long time runner in the Victoria area, I know the best running trails and scenic outlooks in this outstanding park. Home to delicate spring wildflowers, Garry oak and Arbutus ecosystems, Douglas-fir forest and a beautiful lake for swimming & picnicing, this park offers some of the most spectacular running to be found anywhere.

Nothing can beat the experience of running at Victoria for the first time with Micheal, Ann and a dog, Mia! He showed me he is very aware of his locations for run trails. End of the day, you would receive beautiful pictures of nature and you.
