The Alberni Valley Track Club has been raising funds to contribute to the Bob Dailey Stadium track resurfacing project.
“We have formally offered our support—both financial and expertise—to the City of Port Alberni in their efforts,” spokesperson Tracy Smyth said.
“We have one of the best track facilities on Vancouver Island and it desperately needs re-surfacing, both for training purposes (and) also for public safety.”
The track club has raised more than $2,500 by offering adult boot camps with coaches Dave and Jill Sherlock at the Alberni Athletic Hall.
The next five-week session starts the week of Feb. 27. There are two levels to choose from: beginner/ intermediate on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30–6:30 p.m. or advanced on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30–6:30 p.m.
Cost is $30 for one day or $60 for two days a week. To register, please go online to www.avtrackclub.com.
Registration for the upcoming track and field season takes place March 13 and 15 at the club’s office in Glenwood Centre.
Practices start March 27.
