2:18 Run - Twilight Shuffle Phil Nicholls is an expert runner. You could say running is his life. Phil has raced in over 60 marathons and has won the Victoria Marathon three times. Owner of 2:18 Run in the Fairfield Plaza, he is organizing the five-kilometre Twilight Shuffle which will be held on June 25 at 7 p.m. at the University of Victoria.

The course will take runners and walkers around the Ring Road twice before returning to the starting area in Parking Lot 8. Sanctioned by BC Athletics, this fun family evening event is open to participants of all abilities.  All proceeds will go to support the Zonta Club of Victoria, part of a worldwide service organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women.

Approximately two-thirds of the funds raised in Victoria helps fund numerous local organizations including Pearson College, Camosun College, Royal Roads University, Wear 2 Start Society, Warm Up Vancouver Island, Victoria Restorative Justice Society, Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Centre and the Rock Solid program. The remaining third supports international causes including the United Nations Population Fund, UNICEF, UN Women, United Nations Trust Fund and Girls not Brides.
