8 km road race

Puffin for a Muffin

This is a local race here in Camrose that I'm involved in organizing. On May 3rd, we had an 8km race, 3km and 1km fun run/walk. There was also a Kids' Fitness Challenge, where kids were doing fun things under supervision, while their parents ran/walked.

This race is organized by the Camrose Family Resource Centre Association "A Parent Link Centre" and the Camrose Running Club.

All in all, I think it went quite well. The weather was okay, although there was a very strong wind this day.

I had a good run, and placed first in a new course record time of 27:13. David Arial was 2nd, Nathan Erickson was 3rd and David Ball 4th of the men. The wind was quite fierce on the way out, but having the wind in the back as we were running back towards the finish felt nice. I was very happy with my time. The course has one long hill, and with the wind as well, really fast times would be hard to accomplish.

The top 3 women overall were Kathryn Stone, Emily Cole and Paddi Grant.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the race, we'll do it again next year I hope! And yes, we NEED to have porta-potties, I know!

Video clip from the race!

The background music was written and recorded by myself. Thanks to Kevin Nagy for doing the filming.
