On Sunday, April 28, thousands of runners and walkers will lace up for the 24th annual , held in Victoria, B.C. Registration is open for the 10km road race event. Adults can register for $40, and team for $35 each. The TC10K is the perfect race for anyone who is training for The Vancouver Sun Run or the BMO Vancouver Half Marathon.
“The TC10K is great value and the registration is one of the most reasonable race fees in Western Canada,” says Race Director Jacqui Sanderson. “Our run clinics are seeing larger than normal numbers and so we expect an increase in registration this year.”
Registration is currently at 5,300. In 2012, there were 12,483 registered participants in the TC10K and the Thrifty Foods 1.5k Family Run. For 2013, the running clinics at the 13 recreation centre locations have a record 483 participants.
“We are delighted with the response to the clinics. It shows that more and more people are taking up running and walking, and want to adopt a healthy lifestyle,” adds Sanderson.
Individual race package pick-up, which includes your souvenir race t-shirt, race bib and timing chip, will be Friday, April 26 from noon – 5:00pm, and on Saturday, April 27 from 10:00am – 6:00pm, at the race expo.
New for 2013, Frontrunners Footwear and New Balance Victoria will also be sponsors, providing technical gear for the official running clinics and offering souvenir garments for all participants at the race expo April 26-27.
