Elk Beaver Ultras

Race packet pick-up will take place on Friday May 4 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at FRONTRUNNERS FOOTWEAR (corner of View and Vancouver Streets). A race briefing including safety instructions and introduction of seeded runners will also take place at Frontrunners at 5:00 p.m.; please make every effort to attend this meeting. If you pick your package up at 4:30, it’s easy to stay for the 5:00 meeting. Buy some new shoes!

The pre-race pasta dinner will be held Friday May 4 @ Moxies on Yeates St.. It will start at 6:00 p.m. and you order directly from the menu and pay when you leave. Race packets will be available at Moxies if you cannot make it to Frontrunners before 5:30 p.m.

Welcome to the Harriers Elk/Beaver Ultras. The 50K Division is the official ACU National Championship this year. We will do our best to make E/B Ultras a memorable race. Enjoy your visit to Victoria, city of champions and running capital of Canada. I wish you the best of luck with your training and hope everyone leaves a champion.
