BC Athletics has announced that the 2020 BC Cross Country Championships will now be held on November 28 on the Lower Mainland. The original date was October 24 with the event happening in Victoria. The Cross Country Committee said the move was to mitigate some travel requirements.

The Vancouver Thunderbirds have agreed to host and together with BC Athletics are working to secure a venue.

BC Athletics further said it is not a given that the event will go ahead yet, there are a huge number of hurdles to jump for permissions and safety protocols. Event modifications to fit with current mass gathering restrictions have not been decided as this time. More information will be posted as confirmed.

The Prairie Inn Harriers, will serve as a back up location for 2020 and the Championship will return to Vancouver Island for 2021.
