Six Terrace athletes competed in cross country provincials in Vancouver Nov. 7, placing relatively well of 870 runners.

Coach Megan Reid said drains were overflowing and bubbling up it was so wet.

“Those who ran through the mud and the rain at Jericho Beach exemplified the quote selected for this year’s commemorative t-shirt: ‘It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard… is what makes it great,’” Reid said.

The athletes arrived two hours before the race started, and Reid says many athletes were drenched before they even started racing. Wind added to the chill.

Out of 870 athletes, Michaela Yeo got 152nd, Olivia Faetz 189th, Meghan Bowles 197th, Faith Nisyok 180th, Harkirat Dhillon got 200th, Tristen Brown 206th, and Zachary Bilash 208th.
