Langford council recently approved five-kilometre, 10K and 15K routes as well as a funding grant for the Victoria Goddess Run in 2016 and 2017.
Council agreed to contribute $4,000 for next year’s event – up from $3,000 in past years – while also providing the use of the Langford Trolley to shuttle Goddess Run participants between the Westin Bear Mountain and Westhills Stadium, the two central points for the weekend events. The rental of the stadium was also approved at no cost to organizers.
The City’s 2017 funding contribution is to be confirmed based on route selection and approval.
Choice Events Ltd., organizers of the annual Victoria Goddess Run, hosts three separate run routes throughout Langford as a way of raising money for three local charities. Over the past four years the Goddess Run has donated more than $150,000 to charity and continues to raise awareness.
