This well-organized and fast 12K event is a must-do, for those wanting to earn personal bests to add to the more typical lists of events like the 5K, 10k and half-marathon.
Okay, one hill…
Okay, about 11.75K of this 12K course is fast.
We are adding points performance ratings, so you can see how you have run in comparison to your other races. We said this course is fast and it is, but typical for Vancouver Island, there must be a hill. It comes at about 8K into the race. Don’t worry, it will be over soon, then you can make your charge for the finish line and then enjoy a great post-race selection of food as well as draw prized, awards and more…
