    Sooo... not that XC times matter but I am guessing it was a touch short of 8k?

    Course that is 600m short and sub par result website without team results...they really need to get their sh*t together if they are hosting ACXC next year.

    This is where ACXC will be the next two years correct? Are they going to finally make the distances accurate for a national championship? Seems ridiculous that the 10km race could be closer to 9km if they use the same loop.

    If BC Athletics can't even get a race distance within 500m, can we really trust them to score team results properly?

    I wouldn't count on it, provincials were here last year too and it was 500m short, for some reason they decided to make it even shorter this year. Great for getting a big PB though!

    As a BC athlete who has raced this course twice i completely agree that its way to short. They have space to extend each loop but they don't. And not just that but its not a very good course either. Only 1 hill and it's pretty much a 10 foot tall speed bump. The grass is way too thick and there are more potholes than a logging road in the interior.

    Jerico is much better.

    Octogenarians (or close to) running the show. Not that there's anything wrong with that . . .

    I've been told that they are rearranging the course for next year to make it an accurate 10k. For some reason they have also decided to change the location of the finishing chute for the last 2 years. When it was actually 8km it had a little extended loop to a different finish line.

    Distance is irrelevant in XC, but what is relevant is the apparent lack of published team standings. For XC that shows a lack of understanding of context.

    10foot tall speed bump? You sure you ran the race? It's about 30ft and the upgrade is very steep.

    I agree the course is weak but compared to Beban Park it's a huge improvement.

    Grass too long? It was the length of a sport field except on the downhill portion on said speed bump. If you cut the corner you were indeed running in long grass if you stayed on "track" it was short.

    You boys realize that XC distances are never exact. Times mean nothing it's about beating your opponent both individually and as a team.

    None of the races had a close finish. Would adding more distance make the races better?

    Please explain how you they could extend the loop....look at the map. Where is the room? They could move the finish line another 50m.

    It'd be fine if it didn't seem to happen every year, regardless of who hosted it.... and especially this year since it's to be used for ACXC next year.

    The error seems to be the same each time. The start and finish chutes are an add-on to the loop, and the loop is measured using these chutes. Big surprise! any race that is longer than 2 laps is then going to be short.

    Having your XC course be off isn't a big deal, especially if multiple distances are being raced (want same s/f line) and loops are fixed (ie. trail in the woods that can't be modified). However, you should be able to state the precise(ish) distance that each race is.

    Will not deny the fact that the Fort Henry course is probably the best XC course in the Country.

    Spectator friendly, well designed. Reminds me of Terre Haute down in Indiana.

    Hi All,

    Team results were posted on Saturday late afternoon and are available at https://results.raceroster.com/results/unstructured/tc2u665pa9mtussb?id=476

    The delay in being able to post team results at BCXC is that the majority of them need to be calculated manually after each event is finished due to the fact that teams don't need to be declared but are instead formed based on the order of finish in the race (Team 1 is the first 3-6 finishers, Team 2 is the next 3-6 finishers, etc). With team scoring every team needs to have a unique team name, this means we need to manually update the team name for all scorers on Team 2, Team 3, etc. once the event is done. Unfortunately there just isn't the time to do this at the event with 10 races happening back to back.

    For a more standard setup XC race we can post the results instantly and display them using our XC results format on our website (https://racedaytiming.ca/results/2018VIXCSRM and click on Team Results tab).
