The TC10k celebrated its 25th year of running in 2014 and the 26th Annual is going to be on April 26, 2015. The TC10K is certified by BC Athletics and attracts an excellent field of elite runners as well as thousands of participants that register as part of a team or as an individual.
Starting in downtown Victoria beside the BC Legislature the course winds through the downtown core, and residential areas before circling around to Dallas Road and the water where the route hugs the shoreline for the last 4 km of the race. The sprint to the finish line is fast and straight with the back drop of the Legislative Buildings.
In 2014 a half marathon, point to point course was added so there are 3 courses for experienced and recreational runners and walkers to choose from – TC10k, the half marathon and the Thrifty Foods 1.5k Family Run.
The TC10K is hosted by the Victoria International Running Society, a non-profit group that supports and organizes many of Vancouver Island’s track and field athletes and events.
