There are multiple parkades and lots of on-street parking in Downtown Victoria. Make sure to not park along the race route of the TC10K or the Thrifty Foods Family Run – parking meters will be blocked off and residential parking will be cleared. Alternatively, choose to use BC Transit to get to the TC10K. Make sure to check your bus schedule before you leave, as buses run on a different timetable on Sundays.
YES. You can do so post-race at the Gear Check/Late Package Pickup Tent on the Legislative Grounds. Based on size availability.
Yes, you can drop off your belongings the morning of the race at the Gear Check tent on the lawn of the Legislative Building Grounds. You can pick up your belongings from the same location following the race. Gear check closes at 11:30 am.
Your timing chip is built into your race bib. Provided that you have your race bib, your time will be recorded.
Please try your best not to forget or lose your bib. But in the event that does happen, visit the late package pick-up tent near the legislative building stairs. We will have a limited number of bibs with timing chips available before the race, first come, first served.
The TC10K uses Gun Time for any awards with Prize Money attached. Age Group awards and the published results will be chip time.
Yes. Only Thrifty Foods Family Fun Run participants do not need a timing chip.
Once you finish the race keep moving to avoid congestion. You no longer need to return your chip at the Finish Line. The chip is a disposable one-time use chip.
Yes. Runners line up in their time divisions on Government from Belleville. Competitive, recreational walkers and nordic pole walkers line up behind the runners – there will be signs showing where to line up.
There will be big teardrop signs indicating which area you should stand in for the start of the race based on your estimated finishing time. Stand BEHIND the time banner that indicates the time you estimate you will take to finish the race. There will be specific colours based on your estimated finish time so your start area will be with the same participants as yourself. Baby joggers MUST start with the Recreational Walkers.
If you are different levels of ability, you must choose the zone appropriate for the slower runner.
For safety purposes, participants with strollers, baby joggers or recreational wheelchairs MUST start in the Walkers Zone. Helmets are encouraged. You must accept the risks of participating in a race with up to 9,000 entrants. Please read the release and waiver carefully before entering.
Baby Joggers must keep to the right of the road along the course. Those in front of you have the right away. Please be respectful of this.
Only runners, walkers, wheelchairs are permitted. Dogs, skateboards, wagons, in-line skates, scooters, roller skis, bicycles and vehicles are not permitted. Participants with these items will be removed from the course and will be disqualified.
No, the kids get a T-shirt and a finisher’s medal but do not need a timing chip. The Thrifty Foods Family Run is a participation run – there are no first or second (etc.) placers.
Every attempt is made to keep the route open to all participants during the event. In order to meet the commitments made is our race permit application process with the City we do have to open the back part of the course as the morning proceeds based on estimated finish time of the final participants.
PLEASE NOTE: If directed to walk on the sidewalk by either race personnel or ViCPD, please follow their direction. We are unable to keep the entire race course closed until 12 noon on race day.
Thrifty Foods Family Run starts at 11:00am. Kids will line up on Government Street just south of and Belleville Street under the Family Run Arch that will also serve as the Finish Line. Runners run to Superior and turn right, continue along Superior turning right onto Oswego and right onto Belleville through the TC10K arch and past turning right on to Government finishing at the start.
Yes. The West Coast College of Massage Therapy will be present at the TC10k finish area (north west corner of the Legislature lawn) to provide massages by donation. Massages will be available from 8 am to 12 noon in 20 minute sessions. Pamper yourselves by dropping by for your massage. This is still to be confirmed for 2019.
Volunteers and RCMP will be along the route which will open as the final runners move along the course route. Please be patient as volunteers will help get you across the course as safely and as quickly as possible on race morning.
