BC Athletics has worked closely with Athletics Canada and viaSport to develop their Return to Competition Guidelines, closely examining the many factors required to host safe and successful competitions on the Track, Roads, Parks, and Trails.
As the Province this week moved into Phase 3 for sport, BC Athletics was pleased to announce another important step forward in our Return to Competition that, will now allow BC Athletics to sanction both Regional and Provincial Competitions. In addition, they have also updated their “Return to Training Addendum” to allow for larger training groups sizes.
For important documents that must be followed in any BC Athletic Sanctioned Competition, and important guidelines that have also been highlighted, see the BC Athletics’ Return to Regional and Provincial Competition Post

The JD cross country program is designed for athletes aged 8 to 13 years of age. Note: There is room in Coach Scott’s Endurance Running group this Fall (2020) to include athletes entering Grade 7. If not turning 14 until the next calendar year, these athletes will compete as JDs in Cross Country races. Coach Scott’s group meets at the overlapping times with the JD group in the same location but there may be a few differences in their racing schedules so parents are advised to check with both Coach Harneet and Coach Scott regarding JD Race Days.
The Endurance Group trains athletes age 14 and Up. This fall, Grade 7 students have the opportunity to train with the Endurance Running Group–Contact Christa [email protected] to register for this.
