Goddesses swarm Langford Sunday

Second annual fun run hits the streets June 2 starting and finishing at Westhills Stadium

The second annual Victoria Goddess Run takes to the streets Sunday.

The women only event will see about 3,500 runners and walkers in three events starting as early as 7:30 a.m. starting and ending at Westhills Stadium in Langford.

The Red Barn Market half marathon has some walkers starting at 7:30 while the Westhills 10k starts at 8:15 and the BMO 5k warts at 9:45 a.m.

The Victoria Goddess Run supports three charities. The Victoria Women’s Transition House  Society provides emergency shelter services and counselling to more than 160 women plus their children each year. Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Center supports survivors of sexualized violence and increases public awareness of the issue. ProMotion Plus is a non-profit society dedicated to increasing opportunities for girls and women in sport and recreation.

“They support women and girls and that is the connection. So far we’ve raised $24,000 for the three charities,” said media co-ordinator Louise Hodgson-Jones.

Awards and prizes will be handed out at 11 a.m. at Westhills Stadium.
