Some races will not have an early start
Make sure that you check the details of the race you plan to or have already entered. If you need an early start, it may not be available.
The Comox Valley RV Half Marathon, for example, will have an early start as the event is long enough to warrant it. However, the Synergy Health Centre Bazan Bay 5K will not.
It is important that you check race package pickup times and start times. For example, the Harriers Pioneer 8K happening Sunday, January 8 has an 11:30 AM start for all competitors and no early start.
REMINDER: Harriers Pioneer 8K is the BC 8K Championships, the first race of the Island and BC Super Series and the first race of the year in Canada: https://t.co/pgp7ZrKUlP pic.twitter.com/Xx90xn2Oq7— Island Race Series (@vanislandseries) December 6, 2022
The 44th running of the Harriers Pioneer 8K is the 2023 BC 8K Championships. If you have not registered yet, keep in mind that there are five-year age groups, so there will be many provincial champions on the day.

All races in the series are seeking volunteers. This is a permanent thing. If you would like to help, you do not necessarily need race day skills or experience in the field of road racing. There is food support, moving of gear, banner, tent and table set up, and basic marshalling duties, which are easy.
