Join Running in the Spirit for the Royal Victoria Marathon 5k on Saturday, October 7, 9 AM start.

Running in the Spirit is an ecumenical and multifaith running group based at Multifaith Centre UVic, supported by Inclusive Christians at UVic and local congregations.

This is an opportunity to run with a group accepting of any running ability. Feel free to run/walk or fast walk the course. If you haven't run in awhile we will be offering some training runs to get people used to running shorter distances of 1-2 km and slowly working your way up. We can also help configure a training plan for you that you can do on your own schedule. Often it's being part of a supportive team and having a goal to stay motivated that helps staying focused. The 5k course time limit is 60 min. which is enough time for most runners and fast walkers.

Register now to secure the lowest registration fee. Sometimes races sell out as the race date approaches.

When registering you can join our team by selecting "Running Groups" and "Running in the Spirit" when prompted to select a team name.

Others will also be racing longer distances on Sunday, October 8, including the 8k, half marathon (21.1 km), and full marathon (42.2 km). However longer distances require proper training, especially the half and full marathons. The 5k is suitable for kids and adults with moderate fitness who can slowly run, walk/run, or fast walk for 5 km. Races include cut-off times, to honour road closures, aid stations, and volunteers supporting the course.

We encourage people regardless of faith affiliation to join us for this community running opportunity!
