Extremely good time at Yeti snowshoe race

Two teams from Extreme Runners do exceptionally well at annual event

 

 

 

The annual Yeti snowshoe race was held Jan. 26 at Mount Washington Alpine Resort.

There are three races within the event: a kids snowshoe, a 5K race, and a 10K race. The Yeti saw many keen participants, including teams from Extreme Runners in both the 5K and 10K races. The Yeti never disappoints, with a challenging course of uphill, downhill, groomed, and snow-breaking terrain. The Yeti himself (Adam Campbell) made appearances throughout the course, making it a fun family event for both racers and fans.

The weather was overcast, but the mild temperature was perfect for running in snowshoes. The Extreme Runners teams did incredibly well, with all participants earning podium finishes. The 10K Extreme Runners team won the team category with individual results as follows: Brad Crowe 2nd male overall, 2nd in age; Shauna Connaughton 3rd overall, 1st woman; Louis Lamb 4th overall, 2nd in age; Marion Bryan 1st in age; Marguerite Masson 2nd in age; John Ingram 1st in age; and Cathy Clark 4th in age.

The 5K team also did extremely well with the following results: Glen Christensen 2nd overall, 1st in age; Mary Ann Rolfe 1st in age; Mary Bridges 1st in age; Karen Weller 3rd in age; and Bonny Ervin 2nd in age.

The majority of the Extreme Runners team are members of the Comox Valley Road Runners as well. Snowshoeing makes for excellent cross-training as many of the racers prepare for the Island Race Series and other major events later in the season.

“Thank-you to Lene Curts at Extreme Runners for sponsoring the Extreme Runner teams,” a spokesperson said. Go to www.extremerunners.com and click on Facebook to view more pictures and check out The Yeti Snowshoe Series at www.theyeti.ca.
