Races and Pub Night

There are two main races this weekend and we have BVH representatives in each. The first is the CRR Edworthy XC event at Edworthy Park. This is a great little series of races which goes throughout the winter and is great fun. Start is at 12 noon and you just turn up and pay your $10 entry. All standards are catered for and there are two races (8k and 4k) and a kids' race. I know that Harriers Manktelow and Fewster will be running and sporting their new vests to boot. I know that Manktelow in particular is very excited about dusting off the old spikes having retired them a few years ago...

Later that same day (about 7pm I think) the Banff Winterstart will set off from the Caribou Lodge. I know that Harrier Russell will be doing this sprint (for her) following her Okanagan marathon success.

I look forward to reports from all!

Finally, our first pub night will be held next Thursday (November 12th) at Kilkenny's starting at 8pm. I will be bringing the vests for those who let me know they will be there. Hope to see as many of you there as possible. Friends, partners, spouses etc welcome!

  1. Unfortunately due to some plaguing plantar fasciitis since the Okanagan race I won't be racing Winterstart afterall...luckily there's a very speedy girl that's racing under my name instead :) Hopefully i'll be up and racing in the next CRR XC event in Okotoks on the 21st!
