Cross Country Fall 2019 –

Hillcrest will once again be participating in the SD #61 Fall Cross Country Meets.  Mrs. Aune, Mrs. Johnson, and Mr. Lim will be coaching students in Gr. 3-5 that are interested in participating.  Students will need runners and shorts for the practices, which will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays just prior to the lunch hour.

The District Meets, for the zone that Hillcrest is assigned to, will be held on the following days/locations/times:

Monday Oct. 7              Lambrick Park Secondary School                        3:45 pm start

Locations will be sent as soon as possible.​  Parents will be responsible for arranging for their own children and supervision to and from races. Hillcrest staff will be present at all races.

The after school meet start time is always 3:45 pm for grade 3 girls. Each race starts when the course is clear enough for the next group to take off, in order of grade, then gender. Grade 3 boys are the second race, followed by grade 4 girls, grade 4 boys, grade 5 girls, and finally grade 5 boys. Races for the City Finals at Beacon Hill Park begin at 1:00 pm. Participants of the finals must partake in the other races.

Practice times will continue to take place daily at 11:23 a.m. at school. All runners are asked to wear appropriate attire for practices and will be required to wear runners and a school shirt on race days. School shirts will be provided to students and are to be washed and returned after City Finals.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office at 250-477-7272 or email Mr. Lim at tlim@sd61.bc.ca . We are all looking forward to a wonderful cross-country season!
