the Brickyard beast!!
come slay the beast!!
The 2017 Brickyard Beast 10K Road Race on August 6 2017 will again challenge runners to one of the toughest 10K runs in Canada.
Participants in the 2016 event were delighted with the new out-and-back loop over paved roadway that pass through lush forests teeming with wildlife. However, the course still includes the grueling hill known as “the Beast”, and those tough enough to finish will qualify for bragging rights as a Beast Slayer.
Runners and spectators alike will enjoy the lighter features of this event, from the infamous Kid-Zone, guaranteed to cool down runners, to post-run festivities including music, prizes and awards.
Timing chips will ensure quick and accurate results and the award ceremony, starting at 12 noon will include pre-drawn prizes for those wanting to get away early.
A full range of accommodations, including motels, B&Bs and camping are available but in high demand during the summer months making early reservations a must. More accommodation options are available in Nanaimo with a quick commute possible the morning of the event.
