January 8, 2014; Victoria, B.C. – Victoria locals fulfilling New Year’s resolutions by taking on the annual TC10k run can shoot for a personal best by joining a professional group training program at the boutique Victoria Athletic Club.

• Run/walk entry to the TC10k event (valued at $35);
• A 14-week running program;
