Start your new year’s resolution early by joining the Runners of Compassion Run Through Time on New Year’s Eve.

The 2011 Run Through Time starts with registration at 5 p.m. Dec. 31 in the lobby of McKinnon Gym at the University of Victoria, with the run starting at 6 p.m.

Founded by local runners Winona Pugh and Rob Reid, the Run Through Time has been a tradition in Victoria for 23 years. The event includes a five-kilometre run, a 3K walk and 1K kid’s run.

The run helps the Runners of Compassion raise funds for its Shoes for Youth program which donates dozens of pairs of running shoes to young people in need in Victoria and Nanaimo each year. Funds will also go to UVic Staff & Student Services and YW/MCA Camp Thunderbird.

Runners of Compassion is a group which helps support local and international charities through its love of running.

Register in advance at Frontrunners, 1200 Vancouver St., or download a form at runnersofcompassion.com. Entry for adults is $15 before Dec. 26, child (under 13) $5 or $35 for a family; add $5 after Dec. 26.
