CROSS COUNTRY RACING SCHEDULE FOR JDs & ENDURANCE GROUP

The Junior Development (JD) Running Group and the Endurance Running Group have an exciting Racing Schedule with lots of opportunities to run as a Valley Royal. Many of these races are part of the Lower Mainland Series which have cumulative results making an athlete eligible for awards if they place in the top 3 of their age category in 4 races from the series (Valley Royals Grand Prix Races are not part of the Lower Mainland Series). For more information on this series see: https://valleyroyals.ca/upcoming-meets/

All athletes must wear a Valley Royals singlet when they compete. To purchase a singlet please email Christa, at [email protected]
