October 22, 2017. Qualicum Beach

Course Description

The only new event for #COTR2017 takes place in little, old Qualicum Beach at the Community Civic Centre. The course is centered around the various playing fields adjacent to the Civic Centre. Expect lots of grass (probably wet and slippery), not much elevation, sections of single track, a BMX track (ridden backwards) and some sand pits. The Ravensong Swimming Pool is only a hop-skip- and-jump away so a great family location.

Team Tents

Team tents will have a great course location near the Skateboard Park. First Come, First Served. But there will be no parking in the Team Tent area. The access road to this site will be closed for the start of all the races. Therefore, unload, setup then park in the main lot. No exceptions.

Location

If coming from up or down Island on Hwy 19 take the exit for Qualicum Beach, continue northward for about 1.5kms to the traffic circle. Take the Rupert Rd W exit after travelling 3/4 of the way around. Go another 0.5km and turn right onto Jones St. Easy!

If travelling on Hwy 19A (Oceanside Hwy) from up Island take the Laburnum Rd bypass. It will turn into Rupert Rd W, follow until Jones St and turn Left. Boom!

If travelling from down Island on Hwy 19A, turn left at the lights onto Bennett Rd (also goes to the airport). This will turn into Rupert Rd E follow to the traffic circle, half way around take exit onto Rupert Rd W, another 0.5km brings you to Jones St. Turn right. Done!

Parking

There could be lots of other users accessing the facilities and using the main parking lot so buddy up and share the space. There is overflow parking close by on Park Rd near the BMX track as well as street parking.

A food truck (AJ’s Island Grill) will be there for your dining pleasure.
