The Larry Nicholas Memorial Cross-Country Race has been a stalwart of the Kelowna Running Club and Interior Running Association race series for over 35 years. This race is a fundraiser for the annual Larry Nicholas Bursary.


Larry was an avid athlete with a love for running. This run is in memory of Larry who passed away while rock climbing in the mid-1980s. The Larry Nicholas Cross Country run is sponsored by the Kelowna Running Club. The run has always been supported by the Nicholas Family - Larry's parents, his brothers and sisters and their families.
