Another weekend, another epic display from our team! From Ottawa all the way to Sulphur Springs..here’s how we did!
OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND
Half marathon- full results
Vicky Siemon was our first runner to cross the line impressing with the overall win with a time of 1:22:47. This is good for a H+P A-standard and the second fastest female half-marathoner in H+P history!
Michael Diaz continues to improve, dropping yet another PB of 1:28:54. This was good for 93 OA in a very competitive race. Adam Dixon was in next for the team in a 1:34.
Coach Sean was on pacing duties, but was lucky enough to hang on to finish 34th OA in 2:43:45.
Brendan shows that his comeback is on, running a solid 34:58 good for 75th OA.
Devon came in next with a time of 41:15, also proving the comeback is on for him.
Payton was in next for the team with a solid 50:01 finish time.
SULPHUR SPRINGS- our results
It’s safe to say the conditions at Sulphur were less than optimal- mud, rain and hills made it impossible to chase any sort of PB. In fact, only 20% of athletes who started the 100M finished! But that didn’t stop H+Pers…
A huge congrats goes to Reza on finishing his first 100M in 22:38:54- good for 5th place OA! Coffee also battled hard to finish, tackling the 100M in 1 day, 3:44:43!
We also have to thank our awesome crewing squad for giving up a big chunk of their weekend to keep our athletes moving and alive! You guys rock!
In the 50M- a huge props goes to Rebecca on throwing down yet another PB of 9:17:22, good for 4th OA female on the day!
Andrew Heij finished the 50K in 7:21, good for 93rd OA.
In the 10K, Brad ran a strong 44:18 while Claire finished in 1:05:08!
H+P B ran very strong coming in with a time of 18:25:53, good for 4th OA.
H+P A had one of their runners understandably get lost in the dark and lose a big chunk of time. However, they still battled hard being anchored by Alex to finish ninth in 21:35:45.
Congrats to everybody who got out and pushed their limits in less than ideal conditions! Onwards to our next big challenge!
