Pacific Distance Carnival & Canadian 10,000m Champs

The event website is now live, up to date and registration is open; www.pacificdistancecarnival.ca. The site should answer most of your questions but feel free to reach out at any time.

Some highlights:
• Prize money (10,000m) – $500, $300, $200, $100, $50 – doubled for <28 & 32’
• Awards/prizes for 1500m
• 8 travel grants of $500 (10,000m only. Non-Canadians can apply but Top Canadians will be given priority) – apply on website - deadline is May 15
• Pacers for both 10,000m & 1500m. (Targeting Sub 28 (Men) & Sub 32 (Women))
• Fortius Lodge offering $101 rate/night (2 double beds) – good running from here -10km trail loop around Burnaby Lake, grass & turf fields, 1 mile jog to Burnaby Central High Sschool track
• Pyrotechnics, music, drummers, announcers, beer tent, etc

For those travelling from afar we highly recommend a western tour including;
• June 8-9 - Portland Track Festival http://www.portlandtrack.com/

Hope to see you out here in June!

    Why not have a real 5000 as well? There are lots of good 5k folks in western canada and there are barely any 5ks for them to race without going south

    There's almost never a high end track meet with a competitive 1500 AND 10,000. Quit yer bellyachin, this is a good event.

    I hear you but, we felt that in doing so we would dilute the 10,000m fields. Unfortunately we dont have the depth in Canada to make both events on the same evening truly "High Performance" (i.e. WC & OG qualifying times) and we wanted to make the 10,000m the feature event. Hope our theory pans out.

    Chris,

    Is there an entry standard for the 1500m? Can high school athletes compete or is it limited to adults?

    This is a splendid idea! Is there a chance that they could add the 800m and 3000m Steeplechase, or is there not enough time in the program f
