Hi Burnaby/New West and Richmond Cross Country people!
This year we are planning to share three BNW races with Coquitlam (including the district championships on Wednesday, Oct 24th. But we will hold our own pre-Zone and Zone meets with Richmond on Oct. 10th (pre-Zone) and Oct 18th (Zone Final).
Notice that Zone and district finals are separate races this year! Also, runners have to enter at least one league meet prior to Zone, and two league meets prior to the BNW Championship (of course, one of those races can be the Zone race).
Also notice that, for now, meet start times are scheduled earlier (around 3 pm) on Oct 3, Oct 18 and Oct 24. It looks as though this is mainly to accommodate grade 8’s on the 3rd and the 24th — the Junior and Senior races start a bit later. And for our Zone meet it is to make an earlier return to Richmond for our Zone partners.
We can discuss start times, and make sure they work for everyone, on Wednesday at our first meet Sept. 26th. at Mundy Park…
Coquitlam does results with address/ file folder labels put in a dry place on runners’ uniform (possibly underneath shirt hem…) We’ll see how that goes for us and probably adopt it for the Central Park races.
Provincials are in Nanaimo, Nov. 3rd.
