Road Runner takes top spot overall at annual half marathon in Ucluelet

Comox Valley Road Runner Wayne Crowe (Extreme Runners/Asics) continued his winning ways at the Edge to Edge Half Marathon in Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

The terrain was very hilly and extremely challenging. Racers were also treated to a four-kilometre section of the race along the Wild Pacific Trail which winds its way along the rocky coastline before heading back into town to the finish.

Crowe ran a very smart and strategic race and managed to pull away from the competition in the second half of the race to finish first overall in a time of 1:28:54. Other local finishers included Erik Johnson in 1:41:05 and Kelly Wilson in 1:48:50.

In the marathon competition, Janet Green  completed her 281st marathon, finishing first in the F5059 age group in a time of 3:51:28. In the team competition, CVRR member Lynda Agar led the team “Don’t You Mess With My Tutu” to a strong finish in the marathon relay event in a time of 3:55:16.

Other Comox Valley teams included Galik/Roberts in a very fast 3:24:08 and Bipolar Babe.com in 4:49:14. “Congratulations to all of the athletes competing and completing these very challenging races,” a CVRR spokesperson said.

The next event on the local racing calendar is the annual Nautical Days 4 mile race on Aug. 5. Registration takes place from 8 to 8:45 a.m. at the Comox Town Hall, with race start at 9 a.m. Put on your shoes and come join the fun.
