Mothers Day 10 Race -2016
On Sunday May 8th, Oceanside Running Club Association (ORCA) is once again celebrating Mothers Day with its favourite 10k run (no walkers) through Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. This year there will also be a brand new 5k walk/run looping through the Englishman River Estuary. Competitive and recreational runners are invited to come and run the 10k scenic course as it winds along the beautiful oceanfront and through the trails at Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. It is a BC Athletics certified course on what is a mostly flat loop on the road and good trail so should be attractive for those seeking a personal best time or 10k certification. Medals will be awarded to the first three in all the age divisions. The 5k walk/run is designed for those who want to take more time and enjoy a shorter road and trail (non-certified) course . Awards will be presented to the first three participants to cross the finish line. Afterwards there will be the presentation of trophies and medals, plenty of draw prizes and great refreshments. Registration and the post-race activities all take place at the Parksville Curling Club in the Community Park in down-town Parksville. ORCA is supporting a local charity. Proceeds from the race will benefit The Parksville Haven Society. Cost: $25.00 or Race Day: $40.00 Entry forms will soon be found on the ORCA website or
Food Drive
Kris Riggins insists that ORCAs who donate to the Food Bank earn good karma and PBs. Thanks to the earlybirds who have already brought bags full of non-perishables. If you bring cans and non-perishable items to an ORCA activity in the next 2 weeks, would someone who is planning to come to a Saturday group run or Sunday trail run please keep them and give them to Barb Low? You can email me if you want me to pick them up ( We'll donate them to the Food Bank after our Dec. 12th Christmas party.
