The Oceanside Running Club Association (ORCA) proudly presents its favourite 10k race through Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, and the 5k run/walk along the Englishman River Estuary. 

The 10k run is for competitive and recreational runners only (no walkers, no strollers or baby joggers, see the 5k for more information). The course surface is road and groomed trails through the Rathrevor Beach Provincial Park.  It is a BC Athletics certified course BC-2014-034-BDC making it attractive for competitors seeking a personal best time or 10k certification. For the recreational runner, it is fun and scenic. Awards will be presented to the first three finishers in 5 year age categories.

The 5k run/walk route is a loop on road and some trail along the Englishman River Estuary. This is the course to choose if you are pushing a stroller or baby jogger. Awards will be presented to the first three participants to cross the finish line.

The Oceanside Running Cub Association (ORCA) is pleased to be supporting The Parksville Haven Society with part proceeds from the race. Donations are kindly accepted and can be made during the registration process.
