UBC Okanagan Cross Country finish 4th at national championships

The Heat Cross Country teams toed the line at the biggest CCAA (Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association) championships event in history with a field of over 290 student-athletes from nearly 40 different colleges and universities from across the country.

The race, five kilometres for the women and eight kilometres for the men, was held at Parc Michel-Chartrand in Longueuil, Que, and the cloudless sunny Saturday (Nov. 10) and was a perfect setting for the championships hosted by Champlain College Saint-Lambert.

The Heat women had a tremendous performance, and were just seconds away from a national medal, finishing fourth in the team scoring, narrowly missing the podium by the slimmest of margins – just five points.
