September 29

The Interior Running Association will be holding its AGM on October 30 directly after the Larry Nicholas race in Kelowna. All runners and club members are invited to attend and contribute. Every year at the AGM we assign each of the executive positions; so if you would like to be involved in helping develop the running community and promoting the local clubs and series events please attend the AGM or let one of the current executive members know. The AGM is also the time when we plan the race calendar for the following year and hear proposals for possible new races. We also take nominations for the Runners of the Year Awards and the Heinrich Spiller Award of Courage. If you would like to have any input into these decisions now would be a great time to speak to your local running club representatives.
