Weekend Race Report 22 May 2010
A quiet weekend for races.Â It was a cool morning in Penticton but that didn’t stopÂ Rob HerronÂ who came inÂ first place in his age categoryÂ at the Peach City Half MarathonÂ and he alsoÂ took 7 seconds off his Vancouver Marathon Half time from 3 weeks ago.Â And, Rob also qualified for aÂ guaranteed entry to the NYC Marathon in both these races.Â
And on Saturday, Benju Chu was in Chicago andÂ ran the 80km (50mile) Des Plaines River Trail race, nice and cool temperatures for a race day with beautiful course. There had been severe rainfall last weekÂ so there was some flooding and lotsÂ of cold, wetÂ feet.Â Benji had a good race and beat his previous 50 mile (80Km) by over 3 hours.
In an effort to ensure we can track race results for allÂ SAA members, could you please notify Jim Fox (firstname.lastname@example.org) when you have registered for an event (including the current website for the race).Â We dont want to miss acknowledging your accomplishments.
