Lions Valley Athletics Athletes
The OMA Don Farquarson Cross Country 4KM is the second Masters XC event of the season. This is also one of our Featured Fixtures where we hope have LVA athletes compete so that we can declare as many age category teams as possible. Registration will be open Tuesday October 3, 2017. You are responsible for registering yourself online for this event. We will declare teams of 3 in as many age categories as possible but some athletes may end up running in a lower age category.
This is a good race to test out a new pair of spikes since the course has grass, dirt, trail and crosses asphalt twice. The run workout on the Thursday before this event will be an opportunity to do some race pace work in spikes and for some of you run in them for the first time. Foot Tools in Burlington always has XC spikes with older models on sale.
Preference is for you to race in a Lions Valley Athletics Race Singlet and Race Shorts. An appropriate substitute is a Training Shirt with the LVA logo on the front and your shorts of choice. See LVA Race Gear and other Apparel in our [PRICE LIST].
