Weekend Race Report: 12-Oct-09
Victoria Marathon and Half Marathon – Oct 11, 2009
Over on the Island we had a few members racing inÂ our provincial capital city. Tracy Marshall and James Copley finished the Marathon (coming off the Portland Marathon last weekend).Â Ann Hayes finished 3rd in her age group in the Half Marathon. Also completing the Half Marathon were past (and hopefully renewing) SAA member Tess Zevenbergen, and hopefully future memberÂ Tom Â Mueller.
Okanagan Half Marathon – Oct 11, 2009
Up in the interior at the Okanagan Half Marathon in Kelowna, Natasha Purba braved the frigid, -9 C, weather to pull off a personal best.
Turkey Trot 10 k – Oct 12, 2009
Closer to home on this day set aside to appriciating Turkey, there were a number of SAA members running the Turkey Trot 10k at Granville Island. Jim Fox, Rob Herron, Susan Gelinas, Brian Flett, Linda Hilts & Mark Bostwick all ran fast in an effort to justify the large Turkey dinners over the weekend. I believe there were some PB’s in the house for Susan & Jim and also a couple of age group winning efforts by Linda and Mark who both finished first in their age groups!! Nicely done.
Jog for the Bog – Sept 27, 09
A couple weeks late in posting these results, Emma Adams was the first female in the Jog for the Bog 5 km race in Delta. Congratulations Emma and my apologies for the late posting.
Well done to all SAA racers on a great weekend of racing as we start the Fall season!!
