Sunday May 10, 2020
Race Central: Parksville Curling Club

The 10k run (map) is for runners only, competitive or recreational. Walkers, strollers and baby joggers are NOT allowed.   It is a BC Athletics certified course BC-2014-034-BDC making it attractive for competitors seeking a personal best time or 10k certification. For the recreational runner, it is fun and scenic. The course surface is road and groomed trails through the Rathrevor Beach Provincial Park. Awards will be presented to the first three finishers in 5 year age categories.

The 5k run/walk (map) route is a loop on road and some trail along the Englishman River Estuary. This is the course to choose if you are walking or pushing a stroller or baby jogger. Awards will be presented to the first three participants to cross the finish line.

Race Number Pickup takes place in the Parksville Curling Club at Parksville Community Park from 8:00am – 9:30am. Race numbers not picked up by the commencement of the event are forfeited and regarded as a charity donation.

Race Start for the 5K and 10K is at 10:00am. The race starts on Pioneer Crescent cul-de-sac, a short walk up the hill from the Parksville Curling Club.  Both courses will be closed at 11:30am.  Marshals and water stations will not be available after 11:30am.
