Fun Run Early Bird Deadline is Today (Friday).
by Steve MacGregor - Friday, 23 September 2016, 8:35 AM

Hello all,

A reminder that today (Friday the 23rd) is the early bird deadline for the Thrifty Foods Fun Run at the Goodlife Victoria Marathon.  That means it is the last day to register (link below) and have your child's "race pack" delivered to the school, and for their shirt to have the Deep Cove team name on the back.  You may still register after today but you will have to pick up your race pack downtown and the shirt will be blank on the back.

Deep Cove is currently amongst the leaders for most registrants.  Great evidence of Dolphin Spirit! smile

Click here to go to registration page.
