Larry Nicholas 9K

The Larry Nicholas Memorial is a fun day including both 4 and 9 KM cross-country routes in Mission Creek Regional Park. This park is a wonderful retreat where you can transition from city to the trails in minutes.

Larry was an avid athlete with a love for running. His untimely passing while rock climbing in the mid-1980s has been celebrated every year since through this run that is sponsored by the Kelowna Running Club, but driven by his mother Donna Nicholas and their family.

The Larry Nicholas Memorial Cross-Country Race has been a stalwart of the Kelowna Running Club and Interior Running Association cross country race series for over 30 years.
