Marathon 2019 Info

Posted by Claremont Lacrosse on Oct 12 2019 at 10:46AM PDT in 2019-20

Happy long week and happy Thanksgiving to all Claremont lacrosse families!

Some quick info to share about tomorrow’s marathon.

We will meet at Windsor Park in Oak Bay at 7:30 am (important to be on time). I will deal with Sr guys first as they have a little further to go and then jr guys. Our area to cover is from the area of the half marathon turnaround in Richmond area thru Oak Bay. It is best if a driver stays until kids know where they are going as a ride to their post is helpful and quicker

I will have vests, shirts, toques and bags for all boys. Will then give them their ‘posts’ to get to and will them drive around after with food and make sure all is good. I will do my best to pair guys up but the odd guy may be on own.

Please be wearing Claremont hoodies, 1/4 zips and pants. Hats are fine but please no hoods on while marshalling. Weather is supposed to be good but possibly an umbrella. A chair is a good idea too as well a smile, lots of clapping, and a good attitude. As well, some snacks are good too.

They are responsible for putting up street barricades, trying to control traffic, and cheering on runners. Should be done approx 11:30/noon

Thanks for your help with this. Never fun waking up early on a Sunday but…this is a great community event and one that Claremont lacrosse has been a part of for over 10 years. Comments are always great so look forward to another great Victoria Marathon

Thx – Darren
