Getting There

Shuttle Service

Due to limited parking and the distance from Victoria, we are pleased to offer a shuttle service from MEC Victoria to the event location at Sooke Potholes. Shuttle tickets are $10+ tax. Click HERE to secure your seat. 


Parking is available at Sooke Potholes, but is very limited. Parking is $2.25 for the day, and machines accept both coin and credit card. More information about pay parking is available here

MEC will be providing a Shuttle to assist those from P1 and lower lots to the staging area. 


New routes for 2017 are posted below. All distances will start from the Barnes Station Shelter along the Galloping Goose Regional Trail, complete an out-and-back, and finish on a very short uphill into Parking Lot #2.
