The Synergy Health Centre Bazan Bay course is one of the fastest 5K routes in Canada and perhaps North America. The course is nearly flat with an almost imperceptible incline for the first 2.5K. There is one turn, the 180-degree turnaround, then there is the mildest of downhill returns.
The Synergy Health Centre Bazan Bay 5K is one of the fastest 5K road courses in Canada and maybe even North America. If you want a 5K personal best, run Bazan.
The beautiful course starts, runs, and ends next to the water with views of Sidney Island.
For runners travelling from Greater Vancouver, the race is near the BC Ferries terminal and very close to the YYJ airport. The Mary Winspear Centre and area streets provide excellent parking amenities.

Sidney by the Sea
Sidney / SET,TINES
The picturesque town of Sidney by the Sea is situated within the traditional territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ People on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. The community is located along the shores of the Salish Sea on the Saanich Peninsula, amidst the Gulf Islands with Mount Baker standing in the distance. In SENĆOŦEN, the language of the W̱SÁNEĆ People, the land which the Town of Sidney sits on is called SET,TINES, which means “chest sticking out,” in reference to the way the land juts out into the water.
The population of Sidney is 12,318. The mainly flat, walkable community is 5.10 square kilometers and the moderate climate makes it a year-round tourist destination. Sidney’s major economic drivers are manufacturing, retail and tourism.
Just a 20 minute drive from downtown Victoria, Sidney is home to the Sidney / Anacortes (Washington, USA) Ferry Terminal and just minutes from the Victoria International Airport and Swartz Bay, BC Ferry Terminal.

Fishing Pier with a thriving marine life Artificial Reef, a vibrant downtown boutique shopping district, and much more. Sidney’s waterfront location allows for many other water-related activities such as boating, sailing, kayaking, diving and fishing.
The pedestrian-friendly downtown offers an excellent variety of stores, specialty shops and businesses providing unique products and personalized service. Sidney is Canada’s only Booktown where you can enjoy many hours of browsing through new and used bookstores.
