Prairie Inn Harriers (2017)
This amazing, assigned start handicap race where anyone can win often attracts an international field competing for fame and fortune. Ok, it's just people here for the holidays and some locals competing for quirky prizes and socializing at the Prairie Inn after, but it's a club tradition centred at our founding and namesake venue. Oh, and it's free and almost everyone gets a prize! (past results)

Prairie Inn Harriers (2018)
The 21st annual Harriers New Year's Day 10K Run/2K Walk on the Elk/Beaver trails honours all Harriers that have passed on. Meet at the Harriers Memorial Bench at Beaver Lake Park. It's located on the main lake trail, about 100 metres north of the gravel parking lot near the picnic shelter at the far south end of the lake. The 10K Run is a predicted time run with no watches are allowed. The clock starts at 60 minutes and counts down to zero. Start your run when you think you'll finish with the clock as close to zero as possible. The closest finisher to zero wins a prize. There is no entry fee but participants can make a donation to the Harriers Foundation supporting 7 bursaries at Camosun College and the University of Victoria. (past results)
