Last Sunday in April
Started in 1993 the Marathon Shuffle is a relaxed run or walk on 29km of the Sunshine Coast Trail through “old growth, temperate rain forests, along creeks and lake shores, through dales and over hills”. Along the way participants get to enjoy “Magnificent vistas of the Sunshine Coast, adjacent islands, nearby lakes and the city.”
The event is free but, to help maintain trails and cabins, as well as other related expenses, a donation to PAWS (Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society) is encouraged.

National Canadian Film Day is a one-
It was started a couple of years ago by REEL CANADA, which is an organization that has been introducing Canadian high school students to Canadian film for over a decade.

National Canadian Film Day is that day. It's our chance to stop apologizing for loving Canada, and celebrate by enjoying a great Canadian film.
