A (mostly) complete listing of 2013 races


When I did the “yyjrun for Cancer” calendar I included a list of races for 2012. Although I didn’t do a calendar this year, I thought it might be handy to have a list of all the Vancouver Island races (that I know of) again (inspired by Lara from Twitter, who asked about a race schedule). So here it is, with a couple of caveats: (1) if there is an asterisk, it means I guessed the date based on 2012’s race, so make sure you check the website closer to the date and (2) there may be other races I don’t know about or that are new this year. If you see any I missed, let me know in the comments.

Happy racing!
