The McLean Mill 10K offers a rustic and beautiful start and finish area at the McLean Mill. Runners who have enjoyed the Port Alberni Paper Chase 15K race, will be familiar with the mill.

The Alberni Valley Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a new course that is more familiar to runners in terms of distance at 10K with a course more conducive to racing. No longer the Paper Chase 10K, the race is now called the McLean Mill 10K.

Alberni Valley Chamber of Commerce

Unlike most races in the Vancouver Island Race Series, a running club does not host this unique race. Although runners indeed help out by volunteering, it is the Chamber of Commerce that puts this race together each year.

The chamber recognizes the benefits of health, fitness, tourism, and business. Port Alberni is a hub between the west coast and the east coast, both popular destinations. Port Alberni itself is a popular destination, especially for fishing, and eco-tourism and the city offers the most affordable housing and real estate on Vancouver Island.

Ridge View Health & Performance

Ridge View Health & Performance is a multidisciplinary health clinic providing physiotherapy, massage therapy, kinesiology, yoga and much more to the Alberni Valley.

Ridge View practitioners use clinical reasoning to provide 1-on-1, evidence-based care. We empower our patients to heal from injury, prevent further injury and reach their health and performance goals.

Ridge View Health & Performance is not just a sponsor of the race but also joining forces with the Chamber of Commerce to help organize this great event.
