Fall is my favourite time of year! Mostly because I love running and hiking through puddles and being in a forest surrounded by the many vibrant colours of leaves. If you share my excitement for the outdoors, and this glorious season, you may also want to check out my top 5 running races this season
1. CIBC Run for the Cure October 6th, 9am
I've only participated in this race once (in a pink man suit) and it was lots of fun! You can raise money for a loved on, or just show up for a great family fun run.
2. GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon October 16th, 7:15am
I'm not a marathoner, and you don't have to be either to particpate in this race! I'm usually at the finish line cheering on my friends, but you can also register in the 8k or half marathon versions of the race.
3. 17th Annual HarriersThetis Lake 20K Relay November 11th, 1pm
Okay, I have yet to do this race - but maybe this will be the year? I need some other runner to run with! Contact me and let's make it happen!
4. Bear Mountain 10km & Half-Marathon November 16th, 9am
This is apparently the hardest 10k around, and I have yet to race it. But again, maybe this will be my year. Who's up for some hill training?
5. 29th Annual HarriersGunner XC Classic November 30th, 1pm
This IS a classic. I ran this race last year and it was so much fun. It's a hard trail race complete with running through two thigh high (freezing cold) creeks. Prepare to sweat and freeze at the same time!!
