On Saturday, September 22, 2019 six VOC Athletes opened the cross country season, competing at Vancouver Spirit Run at Jericho Beach.
The weather was very poor with rain all night and all morning making the course an extremely muddy one for all athletes.
Top result for this meet was from our sixteen year old athlete, Dylan Uhrich.
Uhrich won 5k for youth category (16-17 years old) with the time of 16:34, and it was the best meet race time for this group age.
