Quinsam Coal, Sportfit and the Campbell River Hospital Foundation are sponsoring the 21st annual Pub Run on Friday to raise funds for the hospital.

Over the past 20 years, the Pub Run (consisting of a keen group of 20 to 30 runners) has raised more than $112,000 to help purchase important medical equipment for the hospital.

The 2011 Pub Run is a total of 16 km, with the Hospital Foundation providing pilot vehicles to assist anyone who needs a rest or a ride. This year the pub runners will begin and end at the Merecroft Village Pub.

Registration will commence at 5:30 p.m. Runners will leave the MVP at 6 p.m., running pub to pub, selling merchandise and generally making spectacles of themselves.

Then they will make their way back to the MVP to celebrate and re-fuel. Keep your eyes out for this dedicated enthusiastic group at your favourite pub. If you would like to run, call Linda Nagle at 250-923-7911 or the Hospital Foundation at 250-850-2418.
