April 22, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – Individuals have until midnight on Wednesday April 24 to register online for the TC10K. The 24th Annual TC10K takes place this Sunday, April 28. Registration fees are $45 for the 10K and $17 for the Thrifty Foods 1.5k Family Run.

“We encourage individuals to sign up online as they get immediate confirmation, their number assigned and have their race package ready for pick-up at the Race Expo this weekend,” says Race Director Jacqui Sanderson.

Late registrations will be accepted at Race Package Pick-up at Crystal Gardens, 713 Douglas Street, on Friday April 26 from noon – 6 pm and Saturday April 27 from 10 am – 6 pm. “We do get a surge of registrations on race weekend, but there is no race day registration, so we encourage runners and walkers to come down to the Race Expo on Friday or Saturday,” adds Sanderson.

Once registered, participants and spectators can sign up to have their race results posted directly to their Facebook or Twitter feeds. “On race day, family and friends can follow their runner’s progress including their time, pace and estimated finish time,” says Sanderson. “It really is a great way to track how the runners are doing and it gets everyone involved in the race.” The TC10K Live Results system is now available at  More information on the service is at:
