Key Facts

Ria is a very dedicated runner, always giving 100 percent.  

Bio

Ria began running track in grade 6, and while races made her nervous, she really enjoys the thrill of running. Up until grade 9 she stuck to shorter distances, but in grade 10 she tried the 3000m event and absolutely loved it. In grade 11, she narrowly missed qualifying for OFSAA, but after training hard for the past year, she competed at OFSAA 2019. Running allows her to constantly push herself to become better, and a good run allows her to distress.

This is what Ria had to say, "it has been so much fun representing the St. Augustine XC team this season, and I really appreciate the support from all our coaches and fellow teammates."
