Our Mission

The organizing committee is comprised of a dedicated group of volunteers and volunteer athletes that aim to put on a competitive, entertaining and well-run 2020 Pan Am Cross Country Championships.

The long-term goal is to bid on the 2023 or 2025 IAAF World Cross Country Championships, but first, we need to showcase our beautiful environment, stunning and challenging course and the robust culture of sport and recreation that goes on in Victoria, BC and all the way up Vancouver Island.

We are putting our best foot forward to put on an exciting and competitive meet on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

Our Victoria International Cross Country Association (VICCA) was created as an overarching society that will bid on other regional, national and international cross-country meets. Pan Ams 2020 is our first.

Proving that we can create a great race environment and experience, VICCA will bid on NACAC, Nationals, Provincials, and ultimately 2023 or 2025 IAAF World Cross Country Championships.
