CVRR Tuesday Sessions for October 17th, 24th & 31st

~~ CVRR Tuesday Sessions for October 17th, 24th & 31st
Hello CVRR runners and we are amongst some exciting fall races on the schedule.
Well done to those who raced the Miracle Beach 5/10 K. Always a great race(s) on a scenic and fast course! Coming up in two weeks is the exciting and beautiful Perseverance 3K/11K trail race. Also, another great option is the BC Cross Country Championships in Abbotsford this year (20 dollar entry fee). This is a fun and competitive race on an undulating dirt and grass loop course with 6 km for women and 8km for men. In addition, other island cross country races are coming up on the horizon. Please see bcathletics.org for more information and search under events. Cross country/trail running is a great strength booster for those future road and track races! I encourage everyone to give these races a try!
