On behalf of both the Victoria Marathon Society and the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon, our hearts and thoughts are with those that have been affected by Monday's tragic events in Boston, MA at The Boston Marathon. So many have been affected by Monday's news. The running community has shown its strength by coming together to support one another at this time.
We want to reassure those registered for the 2013 GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon that our security, traffic and medical plan is developed jointly with the Victoria and Oak Bay Police Departments, City of Victoria officials, and Emergency Medical Services in order to ensure the safest possible event for everyone involved. In addition, we will be guided by the response of other marathon events.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to Victoria in October - Sunday, October 13, 2013.
