On Saturday, the RSS Cross-Country running season concluded with the Provincial Championships in Vancouver.  Kate Granstrom, Elizabeth Elliot, Simon Blackie, and Bryce Molder travelled to the Lower Mainland to brave the rain and wind on Jericho Beach and compete against some of the best cross-country runners in BC.

The puddles were huge and the mud got deeper and deeper as hundreds of runners navigated the six-kilometre oceanside course.
On the boys’ side, Simon placed 87th in the Jr Boys and Bryce placed 54th in the Senior category.  In the Junior Girls category, Kate and Elizabeth had fantastic results placing 35th and 37th respectively.  Congratulations team, and thanks to all of the RSS cross-country runners for a great season!
