Event Details


Exactly one mile, accurately measured and certified by Athletics Canada.  This event is sanctioned by BC Athletics.


A maximum limit of 200 entries will be accepted for this race and each age category also has a limit for each of the 12 races. No exceptions.  Day-of-Race entries will only be accepted should the entry limit not be reached.  Please register early to avoid the disappointment of a sell-out.

Premaster Men = 30, Premaster Women = 30
Master Men = 30, Master Women = 30
Veteran Men = 10, Veteran Women = 10

It is mandatory that each participant completes a maximum effort test mile on a flat road or local track to obtain an accurate estimated finish time.  This estimated time determines your ranking, starting position and bib number.


Every age category is a seperate race.  The runner with the fastest predicted time starts first and each subsequent runner starts 5 to 10 seconds later with the second fastest predicted time starting second and so on down the line until the final runner with the slowest predicted time starts last.


All race proceeds will be directed to Harriers Foundation projects. To date the Prairie Inn Harriers Running Club has raised over $ 325,000.00 towards Foundation projects in Greater Victoria including seven major scholarships and bursaries at the University of Victoria and at Camosun College.


Awards and draw prizes will be presented at the finish line immediately after the last runner finishes at approximately 4:00 pm.  A beautiful, unique perpetual award is presented to the fastest overall male and female.
