Start your new year’s resolution early by joining the Runners of Compassion Run Through Time on New Year’s Eve.

The 2011 Run Through Time starts with registration at 5 p.m. Dec. 31 in the lobby of McKinnon Gym at the University of Victoria, with the run starting at 6 p.m.

Founded by local runners Winona Pugh and Rob Reid, the Run Through Time has been a tradition in Victoria for 23 years. The event includes a five-kilometre run, a 3K walk and 1K kid’s run.

Runners of Compassion is a group which helps support local and international charities through its love of running.
