Course Features

The Live it Up 8km race is a loop that winds through incredibly scenic Rathtrevor Park. This year, feel free to train on the route for our 2020 Covid Virtual Race.

The 8km race starts at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort. The start and finish line will be located in front of the Conference Building on the resort. The racers will exit right onto Resort Way. At Rath Road the runners will turn right and enter into Rathtrevor Park. We will be on the main road until the entry gate to parking lots 2 to 5. We will turn right at this gate and run along the access road until we hit the end of parking lot 5. At that point we will enter into the trail system winding through the park and campground to return to the main road. The race will go back the way it came along Rath Road and Resort Way, finishing back at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort.

Our Cause

This year all of our proceeds will go back to ALL of our sponsors. We are so grateful for all the support we have had over the years. As we make donations back to these sponsors in the fall we will post them here as well as post on Facebook. We want you to feel good and see all the good we can do as a community of runners. Along with organizations like The Haven Society and Nanaimo Runners of Compassion, we will continue to support Everybody Deserves a Smile (EDAS). This organization is devoted to inspiring, transforming, and connecting citizens worldwide, one local community at a time, through powerful leadership, kindness, generosity, and love.
