Victoria buses will be detoured during annual Run for the Cure on Sunday


BC Transit will be detouring several routes to make way for Victoria’s annual ‘CIBC Run for the Cure’ event happening this Sunday between 7:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. 

On October 6th, runners of all levels of experience are invited to participate in the event to raise money for breast cancer research. 

In its wake, BC Transit routes 4, 7, and 15 will miss stops on Ring Road.

Meanwhile, route 14 will detour to UVic via  Richmond, Cedar Hill X, Shelbourne, McKenzie, Finnerty to the UVic exchange, and from the university via Finnerty, McKenzie, Shelbourne, Cedar Hill X, Richmond to regular route. 

There will be no bus 14 stops between Cedar Hill X Rd and McKenzie Ave, and no pickups or drop-offs on Ring Road for the duration of the run.  

Participants in ‘Run for the Cure’ can choose the 5k run or 1k walk in their bid to support the single largest volunteer-led event for breast cancer research. 

1 in 8 Canadian women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, making it the second most common type of cancer in the world. 

Those who choose not to run or are unable to participate can also donate to the cause on-site or at this website
