PIH is proud to present the 40th Annual Harriers Pioneer 8K Road Race, part of the Vancouver Island Race Series and the BC Athletics Super Series. The Harriers Pioneer 8K has a rich history of outstanding performances attracting many Olympians and world record age category athletes. Several Canadian Records have been set at the Pioneer event. Initiated in 1980 by the Prairie Inn Harriers, the certified 8 kilometre course, for the second year, features a new location in North Saanich after 38 years of being staged in Central Saanich. A satellite version of the new course is shown below featuring a route through rural farmlands just north of the Victoria International Airport. It is traffic-free and runner-friendly suited to fast racing times with a semi-flat, out-and-back race course.
