First Frogger Run goes loopy


Finish LineThe first annual Frogger 15 km run in Campbell River was a great success with over 100 runners participating from all over the island.  

“We were so excited to see how the race attracted runners from Powell River to Port Alberni,” said Erin Nowak with event organizer Greenways Land Trust. “In fact the first place winner was Steve Holm from Port Hardy who had a personal best and completed the race in 58 minutes. Sandra Milligan from Campbell River was the first place female at one hour and 11 minutes.”

A route of this length takes a tremendous number of volunteers, including RCMP auxiliary traffic control. 

Novak said she would like to thank the over 50 volunteers who donated time to set up, marshalling, first aid and registration.

The main sponsors of the event were the Campbell River Daybreak Rotary, City of Campbell River, Dan Samson and Re/Max Realty, Dr. Mike Finn, Healthway Natural Foods Market, Investors Group, Larwood Plaza, Liguita Development, Marine Harvest, Outdoor Addictions, Tim Hortons, McDonalds, Shoppers Drug Mart, Shorerunners, Sportsplex, Strathcona Gardens, Swicked Cycles, Intersport, On the Rocks Climbing Gym, Pedal Your World, Spokes Bike Shop, Thrifty Foods, Superstore, Quality Foods, Save on Foods; as well as River City Therapeutic.

In total $3,500 was raised to promote the completion of the Greenways Loop around Campbell River. The  Jubilee Parkway Trail was the most recent addition to this project in 2010.  Once complete, this 25 km loop around the city will provide increased recreational access to all areas including parks and sports facilities.  The final stage remaining is linking the end of the Rotary Seawalk (Maryland Road) to Jubilee Parkway.
