IRA cross country race series 2019
Welcome to the Interior Running Association cross country race series for 2019! We hold an annual race series of both road and cross country races, held throughout the beautiful interior BC. This year the cross country series is generously sponsored by The Starting Block in Vernon, BC.
The 2019 series comprises of five races, ranging from 7K to 9K in distance. We welcome all ages and abilities for a single race in the series, or as many races as able. Series points are given at each race and results are calulated on both clock time and age-graded time. At the completion of the series, awards are given to age-group winners and the age-graded winner.
To encourage fair and safe racing we ask all participants to adhere to the Road Race Etiquette Guidelines as published by BC Athletics.
Any athlete who is able to complete all of the cross country series events in 2019 is honoured with an Interior Running Association Iron Legs award.
