Attention Cross Country Runners!

John Machuga, president of the Okanagan Running Club, has kindly offered to lead a series of 5 workouts this cross country season starting Saturday September 13th. They will be in Polson Park in Vernon at 10 am every Saturday until October 11th. Workouts will be running in the mud, similarly to the Provincial and National Championships. All ages and abilities welcome.

A selection committee will use these workouts, plus the Interior X Country Races and Provincial Championship results to select an Okanagan team for Nationals at the end of November. This team will be competing in the Junior, Senior, and Masters categories on both the men’s and women’s side.

If you are a member of an IRA club or aBC athletics member there is no cost for the training portion. If not, then we ask that you buy a BC Athletics membership and consider joining one of the local clubs. If you want to be considered to be a representative on the Okanagan Team then you must belong to one of the local running clubs.
