St. Patrick's Day 5k!

The new Skeena Valley Runners is pleased to announce our first run event - The St. Patrick's Day 5k on March 17th, 2018! It is a fundraiser for the Caledonia Cross Country Running Club.

The course promises to be the fastest 5k road race in Northern British Columbia.  You will not find a better course to set a new PR. Click on the following image of the course to enlarge.

We will have medals for age group winners and finisher medals for all! We have prizes for the best costume, and a grand prize draw of a $1000 fishing trip with Spey Lodge. We have free green beer and dessert from Wings! All this and more!

Important Race Day Information

Since January 2nd you've been listening to me go on and on about St. Patrick's Day. That day is finally near! We wanted to inspire you to get outside and run. You inspired us with the unbelievable response! We are so excited for the opportunity we are all embracing!

A few notes: Saturday 8am-9:30am you can collect your race packages at NWCC at the Birch Building (Cafeteria building). All participants or parents/guardians must sign a waiver at race package pick-up. Washrooms will also be found here. And don't worry, it's not too late to register! You can also do that here.

The race starts at 10am. Please gather at the start line by 9:45 as we will be doing our volunteer prize draw and grand prize draw before the race. Someone's winning a $1000 fishing trip courtesy of Spey Lodge!

Once you finish the race, our very own Brent Webb and Sue Simpson will be there to congratulate you with your finisher medal! Food and water will be waiting back in the Birch Building.

Age group winner medals will be awarded once everyone has crossed the line. Faster runners will want to bring a change of clothes and are encouraged to return to the finish line to cheer on others and give them the finish line experience they deserve!

The costume contest winners will be awarded at Wings after the race. Wings will also treat you to a Free Green Beer (or non-alcoholic alternative). Proudly show your bib number (and finisher medal!) to get your free beverage!
