The Thetis Lake Trails are a popular running and walking site only a 20 minute drive from Victoria (map). The trails are rated from moderate to challenging and this course takes in a nice variety of both, with the likes of some challenging climbs, rocky hops, river crossings, and then smooth lake-side trails! All routes start on the road west of the main beach, and finish on the main beach.
5km - Will complete a clockwise loop around Thetis Lakes. View the 5km route here
10km - Will complete two loops around Thetis Lakes. View the 10km route here
There will be one aid station on the course, at approx half-way around the loop. A secondary aid station will be available for 10kers as they pass by the beach and start their second loop.
