The River Runners running club has existed in Campbell River since the mid 1980s.

The club hosted the first Vancouver Island Race Association (VIRA)  event in 1988 with a 10 km race that started and finished at Strathcona Gardens.

Over the years the club has gone through some name changes but the original name was adopted once again in 2000.

The club hosts two races per year:  The Miracle Beach 10K, 5K walk/run and a 1 K kids fun run (October 16, 2011) and the Merville 15K (April 1, 2012).  In December 2010 a new committee was elected and a registered society was formed in 2011.

Current committee members are Dawn Christenson, Murray Galloway, Linda Nagle, Kevin Onclin, Sandra Stewart and Ken Wright.

The aim of the club is to connect runners with other runners as well as hosting the two annual races each year.

The River Runners Association is currently looking for new members.

Membership only costs $10 per year and current members will receive $5 off their Miracle Beach registration fee.  You can pick up a membership form at the Sportsplex or by contacting the club at

If you are interested in volunteering at the Miracle Beach race please contact Claire Moglove at

For additional information call Linda at 250-830-8538 or Sandra 250-.286-6818.
