Additional information:

The Hatley Castle 8K by Frontrunners Athletic Club (FAC) is a character course with an ultra fast start and finish, but a hilly middle, especially the “big one” going up after the 3K mark.

The course offers a mix of asphalt and gravel, ups and downs, and spectacular vistas of Esquimalt Lagoon in the foreground and the Olympic Mountains and downtown Victoria in the distance.

Where else do you get to race on the grounds of a castle? And enjoy the sweeping lawns and heavily forested trails of Royal Roads University?
