VI Spine run on National Trails day!

What a wonderful run with our friends from for the VI Spine run.  The Vancouver Island Spine Trail Association organizers had contacted us a month ago because they wanted to organize their run here in Port Alberni! Jackie and I were happy that they chose our beautiful trails for their event, and of course we were happy to help out.

Two large groups from the Comox Valley and Victoria came to experience our little section of the VI Spine trail starting at Ship Creek.  There were three options; a longer ~14 km run to Lone Tree point and return, a shorter 7 km loop, and a hiking option. I (Dave) led the long group, Jackie with a recovering foot injury brought up the rear of the short run, and Robert Gunn from the Alberni Valley Outdoor Club looked after the hikers.
