Cross-country runner qualifies for B.C.’s

30 runners from Campbell River compete in zone cross country championships

The 2011 Vancouver Island Zone Cross Country Championships for Grades 8 to 12  were held in Beaver Lake Park, Victoria on Wednesday, October 26.

Campbell River was represented by two runners from Phoenix, four from Timberline, 10 athletes from Campbell River Christian School and 14 from Carihi.

Runners race as individuals and, if there are five or more from one school, they also compete as a team.

There is one 4.5 km race for all the girls and one 6.7 km race for all the boys. The first 20 runners across the finish line in each race qualify for the BC High School Cross Country Championships on Nov. 5 in Kelowna.

Haven Ullstrom, a Grade 10 student from Timberline Secondary, accomplished his goal of being in the top 20 with his 17th place finish in an extremely competitive field of 195 runners.
