Pavement Pounders pound drinks for a good cause

The Powell River Pavement Pounders are a group of running enthusiasts who decided to create a fun event for the community that would benefit those who create and maintain our wonderful trail networks. That event is the Drink and Dash 10km fun run.

This year’s event, the 3rd annual, is on June 24, 2017, starting at 11:00am, with a finish no later than 2:00pm. Participants walk or run along sidewalks and trails with 8 refreshment stops at pubs and restaurants before finishing at Coastal Cookery for a burger and beer.
