BC Athletics Cross Country Championships, Victoria, Oct 26, 2019
A bus has been arranged to take you from the ferry to the competition site and return. Cost is $15 per person. Seats are on a first come, first serve basis with payment upfront. We will be catching the 7am ferry from Tsawwassen and will be on either the 5pm or 6pm back (last race is 3:15pm). A ViaSport Ferry Grant is being applied for that covers athletes 18 and younger. This grant covers ferry cost both ways. Grant tickets will be reserved as athletes enter the championships. Again first come, first serve as we may not receive all the grants we ask for. Sign up for the Champs now, and reserve your seat on the bus starting at Thursday’s practice. Parents are welcome to travel on the bus at the same fee.
