ORCA’s Oceanside 10k

The Oceanside Running Club Association (ORCA) is gearing up to host the Oceanside 10k race on Mother’s Day.

The Oceanside Running Club Association (ORCA) is gearing up to host the Oceanside 10k race on Mother’s Day (May 10) and are looking forward to seeing more participants at the event again this year.

While it may still be two months away, runners and walkers, are encouraged to sign up and come on out to enjoy the beautiful course that takes you along the oceanfront and through the forested trails at Rathtrevor Beach Park.

If you’re thinking of taking part in the race and need to get back in to shape, the ORCA club will be hosting a Learn to Run course on February 28 open to everyone.

In addition, the club stays busy throughout the week with group runs taking place Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

With tempo runs (Tuesday), hill runs (Thursday), trail runs, or if you want to build up to half marathon distances (Saturday), check www.orcarunning.ca for more.
