Weekend Race Report 27 June 2010
It was another busy weekend for races. To start the weekend off, in chilly and cloudy Seattle, Linda HiltsÂ went down to compete in the hilly Rock n Roll Seattle marathon and Barb HindsÂ had a PBÂ in the half marathon.Â WithÂ over 21,000 finishers, both had great showings. Word on the street is “it was a tough race”.
In Vancouver on Sunday, we hadÂ a dozen people registered forÂ the Scotia Half Marathon running from UBC to Stanley Park.Â It wasÂ a bit on the cool sideÂ with a mist of rain.Â Great running weather, but, when does summer arrive?Â
Dave Burrows, Chris Chan, Sukhal Dulay, Julian Forman, Roger Keatley,Â Walter Kwan, George Lau, Tracy Marshall, Ira Sy, and Joel and Linda Waithman all had great races and there were a couple of PB’s recorded by the group.Â We’ve included a picture of the Waithman clan at the finish.
Also on Sunday, with some beautiful weather that hasn’t quite made it to the wet (oops thats West) coast, Â in Couer d’Alene, Brian Flett, Susan GelinasÂ and Stephen PtuchaÂ reaffirmed themselvesÂ as “Ironman”.Â Â They had great times in all three disciplines and bothÂ Brian and StephenÂ cut more thanÂ three quarters of anÂ hour off previousÂ PB’s.Â Â With about 2,700 athletes competing,Â they allÂ finished well up in both the standings and their respectiveÂ age categories.Â Great job.
